I personally can tell the difference between a St. John's Newfoundland accent, a bay Newfoundland accent, a Cape Breton accent, a mainland Nova Scotia accent, a PEI/New Brunswick accent, a Quebec anglophone accent, a Toronto accent (yes, it does exist), a rural Southern Ontario accent and a prairie accent. That's not even mentioning First Nations and the territories.

don't see something, doesn't mean it isn't there.
