They probably don't want to have to deal with this idiot...

I spoke to a FIDO CSR today, and she said Fido would be taking reservations as well online, starting on the 7th. No word on pricing yet though.

Note that Siri is indeed on the US, UK and Australian sites however none of those countries have 2 official languages.

This is the reason we're not seeing Siri on the Canadian pages but it will work in English.
This is indeed the truth. It is confirmed by Vancouver Sun that due to this incident, Apple has not advertised Siri.

Siri will be on the iPhone 4S sold in Canada and as with the phones sold in other countries on Oct. 14, it will come with versions for English for the US, the United Kingdom and Australia as well as French and German.If you choose French, it is the French of France, not Quebec. Hence, Apple is not including Siri on its Canadian web site because, strictly speaking, there is no Canadian version of Siri. Apparently that is still to come. The fact that Apple released Siri as a beta version gives some indication the iPhone 4S release date came ahead of Siri’s readiness to make her debut.

If you wish to purchase a SIM Free iPhone, an advance reservation is required. Limit two iPhones per transaction. A government-issued ID that matches the name on the reservation is required to pick-up your iPhone. Please arrive at the time and date selected during your reservation, otherwise the reservation will be cancelled.
Does that mean if I want to wait in line on the 14th to buy unlocked version, I still have to make a reservation online first? This was not the case last year.

What makes you a valued customer? Is your contract up or do you give them over $100 a month or something?

So far I haven't gotten this message, but I also don't meet those requirements.
