Traffic Criterion: A question for all owners

What are the major differences in these two? I have yet to own a Canadian release of any movie and I'd like to know if there are any significant differences. Does anybody have a link or a pic of the packaging of the Canadian release?

If I remember correctly, the Canadian version doesn't have a spine number

That's the Canadian cover.

It has the Alliance logo's on the front, and is also missing the spine number..

Other than the cover, the discs are pretty much the same.

For awhile if you e-mailed Mulvaney he would send out a replacement cover. I don't know if that's still the case, although someone posted that they got shot down once because theoretically the Canadian disc was not meant for sale outside of Canada.
