A question about the Dominion

Posted by Dhm on July 22, 2004

Any one who has ever spoken to an English speaking Canadian has noticed that they say "eh" a lot, usually at the end of a sentence and usually with an interrogative flip. In fact, it seems to me that this is quite similar to the way French speakers use the interjection "hein". Have the Canucks borrowed something from the quebecois?

Am I way off base on this? Any Canadians or canadiens care to st me straight?
