Re: old english accent was closer to American southern accent

So, what's it called when Canadians pronounce "about" like "a boat"? When I visit Canada, which is fairly frequently, I have to keep going, "Ow, ow, ow," in the mirror to keep my accent from diminishing!

ETA: OK, I see that that must be the Canadian raising.
