So they're upset abOOt it, EH?

I've worked with/for Canadians, and now the company I work for has a lot of Canadian customers, and they ALL have the stereotypical sing-song-y Canadian speech pattern.

Ever notice they end all their sentences with a rise in pitch, giving the impression that they're always confused and/or apologizing?

@Rod Nunley--If they are French Canadians, could it be they're not confused or apologizing, they're just practicing surrendering?

It's certainly what they do best, Le Pet.

Have Boris Karloff re-record it.

@Rod Nunley - And Happy Canada Day to you, Sir!
