HTTPS Google redirects to igoogle as HTTP

One change to tasks on the igoogle page and WHAM! SLAM!

https://www.google.com/ on my home page - MY link - is redirecting to HTTP  google.com igoogle.

From HTTPS ?!?

I go HTTPS to prevent a redirect to google.ca due to my IP being identified through a Canuck router.

Where the hell is the warning such as that GMAIL throws up for content that is not HTTPS in mail ?

BUT: https://google.com/ can flip up a certificate warning in IE as it redirects to www.google.com/ig

One answer is to always log out after using gmail.

The other answer is to go to the GEAR icon on the igoogle page and opt for "classic".

And where to opt for "RESPECT MY CHOICE TO USE HTTPS" ?!?
