It has come to my attention that some people are having a tough time understanding Canadians like myself. So I am going to run through a very brief translation of the Canadian dialect and hopefully ease some minds out there.
EH= pronounced AY (similar but not the same as huh)
Eh is a useful word that is very important and is the basis of all Canadian communications.It is used in conjunction with other words, or simply by itself. The tone or the slight difference in exclamations also changes the meaning.

EH!!= Hello..you off in the distance!!!
