This thread is down the bottom of the pile and in danger of being lost without my getting an answer to the question "What about /u/?" I can't let that happen.

Canadians think Americans pronounce it that way because they go down into Detroit and Buffalo and it's pronounced with the /u/ sound there. That's how we talk in the industrial north.
