To the OP, Lower Canada was active at Fredericton in the events that led to Britain declaring Canada independent as of July 1, 1867.

I'm guessing maybe he thought the other 4 or 5 currently active threads along similar lines of this topic are losing steam and getting too boring so he decided to stir it all up by necroposting in the dead ones.

Exactly what I was going to say - why can't we just centralize this exact discussion in ONE active thread?

I did not notice its age; its title was intriguing. Is necro-ing a serious issue? I raised the issue on Post your trivial 1st world problems.

But we didn't have much choice. It was we start the Canadian confederation and if not we stay our own colony of England. Of course we would start Canada when we were most of the population. We didn't know we would be treated like a second class people and eliminated from going to the western territories.

Also Canada was not independent in 1867. It was autonomous in the British colonies. So there wasn't like a Canadian citizenship or Canadian military. Our troops served for Britain. Let's not get carried away!

You lost a war, if I recall correctly, in 1763. Something about Montcalm and Wolfe, on the Plains of Abraham? I took up jogging there for the first time while visiting Quebec from the New York area, but I digress.

Losing a war has consequences. Just ask Japan or the "Palestinians." Or the Germans for that matter.
