I have an XSL style sheet that selects only US records with the following
for-each statement.

<xsl:for-each select="//statecodes/coderec[@country='us']">

Now I need to create a new transformation that selects both US and Canadian
records.  ...  I tried

<xsl:for-each select="//statecodes/coderec[@country='us' | 'canada']">

The "|" operator is for the union of two node sets.

thinking that a Boolean "or" might work

It will:

<xsl:for-each select="//statecodes/coderec[@country='us'
                                           or @country='canada']">

The data-type of a predicate is boolean so the XPath boolean operators work as expected.

I hope this helps.
