In a visit to Canada recently we couldn't help but notice that the average Canadian speaks just a bit better than the average American, eh?

I, personally, take a liking to Boston accents. New York accents are quite... interesting as well.

h{,Aa?f, We don't say Eh' it's a stupid stereotype like all americans saying Hunh...

and second Canadian accents are cool , although they vary greatly, there are a ton of accents in Canada just like the US, people from Ontario sound vastly different than someone from New Brunswick but I found when travelling to America that Canadians speech seems more lively and less monotone.

Gidget, Canadian speech is more lively, but the eh thing is not a stereotype. I'm married to a Canadian, have lived in Canada and travel there often. Canadians do say EH!!!!

French speaking Canadians are completely different.
