That's what I was thinking. But I scored pretty much the same as you, so maybe that combination can be the Canadian one.

Hehe, seeing as how I scored 5% on upper midwestern... I'm guessing Canadian would be nothing like that.

To be honest, I'm not even sure what an upper midwestern sounds like...

. . . I'm from the Midwest, too. o_o;

And you're right, it -does- need Canadian. But then again, anything attached to North and South America is American. So I guess anywhere within those ranges that speaks English needs to be classified, too. ^^;;;;; ("Nikki, shut up. <3") ^^;

hehe, Yeah, some people call both North and South American, "the Americas"
