PostSubject: Northwest Ontario   Mon Nov 29, 2010 5:40 am

With a smaller French population, and sizable Aboriginal population, this area is somewhat unique as having elements from both the Western provinces and the rest of Ontario. Communities receive media from both directions, and residents travel frequently to both areas, prompting a blending of dialects. Sharp eared locals can detect from word usage (soda versus pop, hoodie versus bunny hug) where one originated, "Down south" (Thunder Bay and beyond the Great Lakes) or "Out West" (west of the Manitoba border).
