Sorry lol, had to. But joking aside, I'm not a Linguist, But I know Canadians get arsy about being called Americans by Foreigners the same way Australians sometimes get called English...
Both Canada & the USA have regional accents and usages, Someone from Newfoundland certainly doesn't sound like someone from Calgary or Northern Ontario.
Someone from Brooklyn sounds very different from Texas or California or Georgia.
