Why ne is put with nous instead of aime

Maybe it's just my poor Quebecois street french education, but isn't "Il nous aime pas" also correct?

I believe it's fairly common in colloquial spoken French to omit the "ne" part of the negation. As far as I'm aware, it's a matter of register rather than dialect.

Thanks Christian, glad to hear I haven't necessarily been butchering the language too badly!
