For work I used to deal with a lot Canadian vendors and often spoke to them on the phone. A lot of them especially from Alberta and Nova Scotia had very heavy accents which were close to the stereo type. I thought it cute on women.

To someone living outside North America it is common, to them Canadians and Americans are very similar. North Americans are more eager to point out the minute differences but Truthfully we are very similar outside Quebec and the Hispanic areas of American southwest. In the northern USA you will find great similarities to Canada, obviously as you move south there is more geographic and cultural differences but still a lot of similarities. Really the difference between Canadians and Americans is more about politics and attitude toward the role of government. North Americans are all the children of the British empire and that common culture and history can never be hidden or erased no matter how many people try to do it.
