Yes, us Canadians do have quite the accent, some moreso than others. I use the word ''eh'' all the time, without even realizing it, simply because
it's the norm around here. Basically, you adapt to the language, and before you know it, you are part of the Canadian stereotype
I was born and raised in Canada, and have never left the country...so far.
Again, thanks for all the warm welcomes, it makes me feel a lot more comfortable, being a new member and all...
On an unrelated note, do some of you find it rather difficult posting your own views/opinions on here, though? I mean, it seems that nine times out of
ten, each thread of interest tends to turn into a flame war of some sort, and it's really discouraging to see this happen almost constantly. I guess
this goes hand-in-hand with the subject matter in these forums, which are undoubtedly the most 'touchy' subjects when it comes to arguing over who
is 'right' and who is wrong', who has 'evidence' and who is 'making up' stories...
I work an office job with full Internet access, so I'm on here most of the time out of sheer boredom, although I must freely admit that being a
lurker on this site since 2004, I sure have self-educated myself in many areas, as there is a TON of worthwhile information compiled on here, enough
to discern for yourself what is 'right' and what is 'wrong', so to speak.
