Yup, this one is about local pronunciations or Shibboleths. In our neck of the woods whore was pronounced Who -er. Yup, we are a hick western town. Coyotes rhymed with pye goats, Coteau was pronounced Caught-O and we can always tell a ferriner by how they say Saskatchewan (I can’t figure out how to get the phonetic pronunciation of that one written correctly).
In Burtish (British) Columbia the largest city is Vang- couver (Vancouver)
