Why didn’t the USA invade Canada in the early days?

But what if spain were to shift it focus on north america instead of south america? Would ya think that the USA would've been formed in south america? :ohhh:

I think it probably would have turned out like South American eventually did: a bunch of independent states sharing a common culture and values, yet intrinsically unstable and hostile to each other.

Canada has the third largest oil reserves in the world. If Canada elected smarter prime ministers it would be one of the wealthiest countries in the world. Plenty of good resources.
Canada is the 9th richest country in the world.

They could be wealthier if that's what you meant but they're already one of the wealthiest.

From what I have understood when I read other books on Atlantic slavery:

Spain was a monarchy; ghost ruled by the Vatican. They actually did have a focus on North America. Georgia was created as buffer zone between Florida and SC just in case they tried it. I only think they did informally, maybe even maritime conflicts, but they mostly maintained their Caribean islands because of Sugar. Sugar in the US was mostly harvested in the Deep South. Upwards in the USA was Tobacco, etc. To move upwards into mainland USA meant disrupting their deals with the Pope, and their own royal monopolies.

If they did, I think we would still have the same results because the indigenous/enslaved populations and their revolts start to impede your ability to govern in your homeland. In an era of enlightenment, you don't want your citizens questioning your authority and trying to kill you.

Wasn’t shyt up there worthy of invading.

Living up here from the states I am amazed at the level of ignorance and stupidity people have in america about canada. Yall would kill to live in a place with actual nature. My only regret is that the RCMP exists and that the first nations are completely in control.

I drink tap water everyday here, i can actually smell fresh air. I could never live in america again, this is not even counting the healthcare shyt.


Canada is just a British Oil LLC mixed with genocide

They tried. The White House got burnt to the ground as a result. None of you ever heard of the War of 1812?
iu

Toronto/York itself got burnt down.
Canadian regulars didn't partially burn the white house, british troops did.
The War of 1812 ended with The Battle of New Orleans - January 8th 1815.
