I read somewhere that Alliance will use the same transfers and features from US discs when US disc comes out first or the same time. If Alliance comes out first, you get bare-bone theater cuts and often times wrong ratios (many early 2.35 discs were cropped to 1.78, like Blade).
I'm pretty sure the Canadian Alliance release
is a direct port of the US Lionsgate re-release
with the exception of the slipcover the Canadian release apparently had.
