Subject: Canadian use of "klicks"?

I thought the use of "klick" for kilometer was confined to the US

military and to science fiction stories. Now I'm told that it's

commonly used in Canada by people between around 25 and 35 years old

-- in both English and French.

This is from an anglophone Canadian.

Is this accurate for Canada as a whole, or for one section of Canada,

or what?
