Oh no? Thats too bad, he should like his roots.
Here's the quote:

"I'm not Canadian. I hate when people say I'm Canadian. I play for the U.S."

http://www.canada.com/topics/sports/story.html?id=0575ff31-4dec-4338-979a-6c8b4f6e7a55

Honestly, though, I don't think he's trying to distance himself from his Canadian roots. I think he's just annoyed by the fact that many people still call him Canadian when he represents the U.S. Calling him Canadian could be interpreted as an implication that he's not American or somehow less American because he wasn't born in the U.S. Or it could just be an honest mistake, but either way I can see how it would be irritating. I doubt that an American-born Canadian representing Canada would appreciate it if journalists and commentators continually referred to him as an American.

Levine's dad, by the way, is apparently from the U.S. originally. It's mentioned in the article.

I agree.

Well done to Jesse. He has making nice progress.
Last November, he won 2 titles and 13 matches in a row in 3 challenger events in successive weeks.
This year he's been getting some experience on the tour and won a match at the Aussie Open. He is showing that he deserves the wildcards he is receiving.
