How is a Canadian accent different from an American accent? ?

I really don't hear the difference between the two, they're both proper English.

    The Canadian accent is about the same as Midwestern USA. But they do pronounce a few words differently and their vocabulary is a tad different. For example many Canadians pronounce the word "schedule" like shed-ule instead of sked-ule. And many call the bathroom a washroom.

    Ask a Canadian to say Tuesday. To American ears it sounds like Chooseday.

    Famously, some Canadians pronounce "out" as "oot" but mainstream Canadians and Americans sound alike unless you're some kind of super accent authority.

    Oh no..no..no neither of them are proper English, they are what we in the real world refer to as "Slob English" or "Mouth full of food English"

    I can't either ( not counting the southern states).

    I can't tell the difference between an Australian and a New Zealand accent either.
