many canacucks live near the US border
I think they love america.
You think we had a choice? Try living and farming in a fucking tundra.
Also, settlements back in the day were purposely built close to the border for ease of trade with the US, and security reasons.
>Alaska still not connected to the lower 48
IT'S SHIT, SHIIIIIIITT!!!!!
It's full of minerals, precious metals, and oil.
>What kind of madman are you
Born and raised inhabitant of Saguenay
>You know what's up there? Nothing. Not one fucking thing.
yes! they should live near this polish gentleman named North
The sole purpose of the Canadian arctic is to make fun of Russians when they try to invade our airspace, then turn the fuck back when they see glorious NORAD CF-18s in the horizon.
It makes interesting news to read in the newspaper.
Canada is literally a fake country, created when Britain was forced to dump a few hardcore cucks (who formed the vast minority of American loyalists) after the Revolution. Canada has no real identity (DUDE PINEAPPLE PIZZA LMAO) outside of Quebec (which doesn't even want to be a part of Canada). "But that's not fair, Canada has culture!" you say. Very true. The flannel-clad lumberjack, trapping fur and making syrup is a well-known icon world-wide - a QUEBECOIS icon. The only thing close to iconic culture that (Anglo) "Canada" has are the Mounties, and those guys are just gay cowboy police who had to go settle the west because the "Canadians" were too cuckolded and scared to do it themselves. One of Canada's folk heroes is a cop who took away an American cowboy's guns when he tried to go find gold in the Yukon. Can you honestly think of anything more pathetic than that? Great Britain doesn't give a fuck about Canada. Just because you say "Zed" instead of "Zee" doesn't mean they care about you. And why would they? You threw away your British heritage for A FUCKING LEAF and what do you have to show for it? You're a bargain bin America, basically an oversized Vermont. Canada is blessed that they happen to live next to the single most benevolent and peaceful military superpower in Western History. Nobody else would let a pathetic joke like that exist right on their doorstep. And we don't even have to. With NAFTA and the gradual erosion of anything remotely uniquely "Canadian" you're grandchildren will be begging us for annexation. I just hope that my progeny have the good sense to reject it. I wouldn't want this great country bogged down by something as pathetic as """"""""Canada"""""""".
Basically. But you could also use that the other way around and say Americans are just Canadians who rebelled against the Monarchy.
They became the bigger and more powerful country in the end so they tend to think of themselves as superior to us, but our roots are the same and our histories are intertwined
Northern Ontario and Quebec have a lot of muskeg which makes it hard to build things. This is why you will see cities in the prairies farther north than cities in the east
Also the north is fucking cold
Not really. But in order to make Americans and Liberals mad, yes. If the UK was still the great empire it was, we'd probably still be ultra loyal but at this point it's more of a tradition thing.
>tfw New England and Atlantic Canada will never be united
Most Canadians are indifferent, but I would say most are generally at least a bit supportive of the Monarchy if they had to choose. When anything related to the Monarchy happens though (Such as Royal weddings, births, visits, etc..) people start caring a little bit more. When the Queen came here for Canada Day in 2010 it was a big fucking deal
I don't understand this mentality.
You invaded us...and we won. So that makes our entire identity "Not being Americans" because we didn't want to annexed by a foreign force?
Canadian Nationalism was born out of the war of 1812 because for the first time we fought to defend ourselves. War breeds nationalism and pride.
Most Canadians don't really think about the monarchy, but I would say more people support it than don't and when a member of the royal family visits it's usually a pretty big deal. I saw Prince Charles when he was here.
Royal symbols are everywhere, a lot of classrooms will have a picture of the queen, etc.
Personally I'm very pro-monarchy, somewhat mostly because republics have shit aesthetics compared to monarchies but also because loyalty to the crown is really the only reason Canada exists at all.
The general assumption was that the rest of British North America would eventually petition to join the U.S.
It wasn't until the War of 1812 that Britain started pumping you full of settlers to fight off another invasion.
>Canadian Nationalism was born out of the war of 1812 because for the first time we fought to defend ourselves.
Exactly. Prior to that, Canada was Quebec and a bunch of bumfuck British settlements.
I might be wrong but I think 1812 for the most part French-speakers along the St. Lawrence called themselves Canadians. Anglos at the time would have just identified as some sort of British. Later on Anglos in the Canadas also called themselves. Only once Confederation happened did people in places like BC, the Maritimes, etc. start calling themselves "Canadian".
Those were Brits, and they immediately retreated afterwards. In fact, that punitive raid was their single most successful operation in the war; every other one was totally repelled.
Canadian Militia was a big part of the defense of Upper and Lower Canada. I understand the "hurr Canada wasn't a country" yet meme but you could also say that Americans can't claim to have done the Boston tea party because they weren't a country yet
idk m8 this song was written during the war.
It uses "Canadian" and "British" as mutually exclusive. So although "Canadian" wasn't a nationality back then, it was a thing.
>Canadian Militia was a big part of the defense of Upper and Lower Canada
I'm revelling in the Americans being ass blasted ITT
That's literally the opposite of true
>it was a thing
Invented by your government -- which, by the way, only gained independence in the 1980s because the British grew bored of you
>Brazilian monkey doesn't realise how retarded it is to build cities in areas where food can't grow
Yeah sure, lets build Iqaluit into the next Toronto, we'll just fly in our food. $25 loafs of bread? Sure!
>grew bored of you
Only an American could make a post this dumb. Most of the Americans on this board seem to be living, breathing stereotypes.
