It's probably more "affectionate" than the term "yankee" for Americans.
I thought that it was meant for those who live North of the Mason-Dixon
Line, but people use it for all of them, and more likely for derogatory
reasons. I learned that it was for French Canadians, and evolved into
a term for all Canadians.
