Default Is this a good French Canadian accent?

Played by Molly Ringwald (!) in a Christmas movie shown on the Lifetime network yesterday.

Hard to tell, as the video cannot be viewed in Canada. It's blocked, for some reason.

She speaks excellent French but there is nothing French Canadian about her accent.

My french isnt good enough to tell the difference, to me French is French ..
however this would be a good segue into showing us the differences.

My french isn't very good, but I can tell the accents quite easily. I'm surprised you can't since you live in Canada.

I'll see if I can find time to search for a few, but this is surprising because in Montreal you basically have French accents from all over the world present and you hear most of them virtually on a daily basis: Québécois, Acadian, Parisian, North African, Caribbean, Sub-Saharan African, Middle Eastern, etc.
