During America's Revolutionary War, why did French Canadians sit on the sidelines, considering they were at war with Britain a few years previously?

from article

Both British and American leaders rightly believed that the support of the French Canadians would determine the possession of Canada, for there were too few Anglo-Canadians to hold the territory and too few American soldiers to take it. Ultimately, Britain won the battle for the allegiance, or at least neutrality, of the Canadiens. It benefitted from the Quebec Act of 1774, from American political and military missteps, and from the desire of many French Canadians to steer clear of a war between what many deemed occupiers and outsiders.

Did your ancestors "stand fast" against revolting Americans, and do you continue to do so?

At that time Canada was not really in existence other than colonies called upper and lower Canada, the French really werent a cohesive fighting force and were basically considered British citizens ,particularly after just being handed their butts by the British at the battle of Quebec .

I do believe dinosaurs existed! What gave you the idea I didn't? And your ethnicity doesn't matter to me.
