On fb I, and a few others, were trying to work out where the bartender's from seeing as he apparently speaks a non-rhotic variety with canadian raising.

Wikipedia tells me that there are small isolated areas in southwestern New Brunswick, parts of Newfoundland, and the Lunenburg English variety spoken in Lunenburg and Shelburne Counties, Nova Scotia, with non-rhotic varieties in Canada. Apparently most North American varieties raise /ai/ though even those outside Canada and there are places in New-England which are both non-rhotic and have Canadian raising.

So I guess probably from New England?
my pronouns are they
