Dunno if you guys remember the discussion of the Newfie accent (versus the Newfie dialect), and I said that I detected a Newfie accent in Rock Hillier’s speech on the radio (though he didn’t use the dialect).
Well, it turns out that Rick Hillier is indeed a Newfie:
He’s the NATO commander in Afghanistan.
Also, the local CBC guy is a Newfie too, right? He definitely has a touch of the accent (either that or he’s from Cape Breton and is pretending to be a Newfie).
