We are???! Then why do we have all those laws requiring metric
labelling? And if the US is officially metric, why is everything down
there labelled in imperial - and why is everything imported from there
relabelled in metric, for that matter?

I think you may be mistaken - I think I remember watching the news the
day the official announcement was made that Canada became metric, and I
can't imagine why they would have suddenly started cramming metric down
our throats if it were otherwise.
