A common misconception. Canadians think Americans pronounce "about" as "aboot" and Americans think Canadians pronounce "about" as "aboot" as well. However, to my knowledge, no one actually pronounces "about" as "aboot".
American Guy: You're from Canada?! Say about! Say it!
Canadian Guy: ...About?
American Guy: What? Don't you say aboot?
Canadian Guy: ...No?
