That's simply not true at all.
Almost all of the Alliance issues are with the Canadian exclusives where the Americans got NOTHING.
With a couple of exceptions, Alliance has replaced weak transfers with better transfers when they became available. Obvious examples would be SIN CITY and A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET. We got these as Canadian Exclusives long before the United States. When they became available as new transfer in the U.S., Alliance released them here as well.
The crime committed by Alliance is that they provided a lot of titles long before U.S. versions were available.
And of course, the VAST MAJORITY of Alliance films distributed in Canada are identical to their U.S. counterparts (everything from Shaun of the Dead to The Mist and hundreds more).
But there is not need for argument.
If people don't want the Alliance release of the Scream Trilogy, they can simply order the much superior 1080p U.S. release instead. Problem solved. Right?
