This would make sense since the name is almost 'manure'. They have increased their USA presence by buying John Hancock, but don't know how it would play out in Canada to use the name of a USA patriot. On the other hand this is much higher profile name. Given the choice between the two, I would vote for John Hancock. Even better might be a name that included two patriots, one from each side of the border.
