I'm aware of the existence of the Chiac dialect, but I don't know much about it. Could someone please explain how prevalent it is, and how it differs from other French dialects?

    I heard people talk Chiac in New-Brunswick but I won't even try to explain anything about it as I had hard times understanding what people where saying, while I'm fluent french and québecois ;)
