Help north americans

How do you differentiate a Canadian from a USAian?

I always assume people are USAian and it turns out they are Canadian.

Usually they're more polite, pronounce "bout" as "boot", and are afraid of the dark.

Serious answer: there are subtle differences (sometimes not subtle) in the way most Canadian dialect speakers pronounce our vowels compared to most dialects of American English (the American South is... special. Only God knows what the heck's going on there). Most Canadians exhibit something called Canadian vowel raising.

We do not say 'aboot'

My theory:

USAians walk around with a lot of weapons
Canadians walk around with their pet bear

I always turn on subtitles when there is a southern USAian in TV. Least understandable english accent in the world.

I just cannot work out why they speak so slow.

I can leave, go make a sandwich in the kitchen, come back and eat it, before they finish their sentences.

I went to undergrad at a college in Michigan where about 10-15% of the students were from Canada. I tell you what, 99 out of 100 times I could tell if a classmate was Canadian. Something about the package of subtle differences - the attire, the gait, the choice of words, the hair. It's not just one difference, but the combination of several.
