Canada is a big country.

Britishness depends on where in Canada you are.

Victoria, BC ....kinda British...

Quebec City ....not so much

Agreed. The historical British influence plays out in all of its one time colonies in different ways; even the US is more "British" than the others in certain ways. In which country is that legacy strongest depends entirely on what aspect of society you're looking at. But none of them are essentailly "British". Even their earliest "settlers" from Britain wanted to distance themselves from British society of the day in one way or another.

I do agree, it's so embarrassing in the UK to see the old empire discussed and old flags , there is plenty of being British to be proud of, our unique artistic culture, ancient history, Stonehenge, the 2012 Olympics, our dynamism, soft power (Adele ect) and of course our blood ties to any Aussie, Kiwi and Canadian who connect with us .

Most of these threads on CD are pointless exercises. That's kind of the whole point. It's not like things actually get solved here. It's for entertainment mostly.

In what way? I know where I live it certainly doesn't seem the case. The names of streets, schools, cities and towns and even our institutions don't hint at anyone distancing themselves. I get the impression they wanted to create a new UK society in Canada. That doesn't mean over time Canada has set it's own course and own way of doing things.

Perhaps you are thinking of the US which did seem to turn it's back on " British " ways after the revolution, but not totally of course.
