"Canada West" was not a political entity. It was part of the pre-Confederation Province of Canada. "Canada West" was a geographical name that was applied to the territory of the former colony of Upper Canada between February 10, 1841, and July 1, 1867, i.e., between the the Act of Union and Confederation.

The colonies would lose their independent status, their resources, their ability to define and decide their future both culturally and politically, and of course lots of money.

How does the RCMP show Canadian identity?

There is no "Canadian Identity". Canada is a Confederation of many Nations each with many cultures and their own identity. One of those Nations include Ontario who saw Western Canada as their own. When those living in Western Canada rebelled against colonization by Canada many people in Ontario took it as an insult on many levels. Rebellions were not acceptable. The response was swift and violent and resulted in Canada, mostly Ontario, creating a paramilitary police force that would be permanently stationed in the West to keep the rebellious locals in check. In that way it shows that those from the Province of Canada are violently opposed to others having input in a Confederation their consider theirs and theirs alone.

Why did Canada East join Confederation?

because the political deadlock was making it impossible to do anything in Canada east and Canada west. ================================================================ Technically, Canada East did not join Confederation. Canada East and Canada West were merely geographical designations, not political entities. The pre-Confederation Province of Canada was the political entity that joined Confederation. Immediately upon Confederation, the Province of Canada was divided into the Province of Québec and the Province of Ontario.


How did Canada east feel about Canada west joining the Confederation?

Canada East and Canada West were already part of a political union, the Province of Canada, before Confederation, so they wouldn't have seen each other as joining Confederation. In the Province of Canada, Confederation was seen as a solution to a domestic issue. The Parliament of Canada was ineffective because a double majority of MPs from Canada West and Canada East was needed in order to pass legislation. Governments were fragile and short lived political coalitions, and they could never get anything done because the two regions could not agree on anything.Federalism brought greater autonomy for the two regions by granting them self government, and strengthened the central government by freeing it from the need to please everybody all the time and by bringing in more parties to the union, namely Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, which helped to correct the adversarial East/West dynamic.
