EH?

EH? (ay), n. [Colloq.] Canadian term for right?, okay?,

please, maybe, thank you, how about it?, don't you?.

Used after a statement or question. Said with spirit and

pride even to Americans and other visitors.

WHY DO CANADIANS SAY EH?

IT'S BETTER THEN SAYING HUH!

Hey, I'm not a lumberjack, or a Furtrader, and I don't live in an igloo, or eat blubber or own a dogsled. And I don't know

Jimmy, Sally or Suzy from Canada, although I'm certain they're really, really nice.

I have a prime minister... not a president, I speak English and French, not American and I pronounce it About, not A-boot.

I can proudly sew my country's flag on my backpack, I believe in peacekeeping, not policing, diversity not assimilation, and that

the beaver is a truly proud and noble animal.

A toque is a hat, a chesterfield is a couch, and it IS pronounced Zed, not

Zee... ZED!!

Canada is the 2nd largest land mass, the 1st nation of hockey, and the best

part of North America.

My name is dblonghauler.

and...I......AM......CANADIAN!
