pronunciation observation

My Canadian journey continues.

Through the Harper Government's attacks on Ontario, I have learned that I've been mispronouncing the word premier, the head of provincial governments, analogous to a governor in the US. I've been saying pruh-MEER, like the opening of a movie. Now I realize it's PREE-mere.

It's tough to say PREE-mere. I feel like Cletus. Does the PREE-mere put a decal on VEE-hickle?
