things canadians say

Off topic: There are some things canadians say that give them away without their knowledge. Not the obvious things like "out" and "about". The following are dead giveaways that the speaker is canadian:
  • "phone" as a verb. "I'll phone you later". Only canadians say that. Any normal person says "call".
  • "to-more-oh", instead of tomorrow.
  • "sore-ee", instead of sorry
Cagey canadians will effectively filter most other cover-blowing terms, but the above consistently escape their notice.
