"my dear and respected colleagues" would work ;)
I could easily imagine "thank you all for coming",
but not with any slur between the "you" and "all"...
Canadian English tends to be a lot like midwest 'merican,
spiced up in some places with various UK flavors.
I'm given to understand that the French spoken in .ca
tends to be sort of old-fashioned and slangy, rather than
"proper" (Parisian) lingua franca. but it was a Hatian
taxi driver in Montreal who shared this with me ;)
