Moot point. Other large countries like us for different reasons.
China has big energy business dealings with us, they wouldn't let that be threatened
Russia likes us, we give them a challenge on their hockey, and we are like their cold weather buddies. No one else understands their cold weather woes
As well, there is too much trade and business between the US and Canada, Canadian owned US companies, US owned Canadian companies. A LOT of US owned
Canadian companies, OMG they've already taken over
We are way too tangled together already, although I do remember George Bush Jr threatening us over not wanting to go to Iraq, but we all know he sits
on his brains anyways, so he wasn't taken too seriously.
I remember back when we had Chretien in government, he threatened to cut off oil over the free trade lumber squabble. But we just agree to disagree on
issues, like families do.
edit to add: I forgot all about the commonwealth, sorry Brits, didn't mean to leave you out. All of our land, military, and resources are actually
owned first by the Queen, and then shared (leased to?) with us and our investors.
