We joined right away because:

The national government would have to pay all money for poor colonies

After Confederation we would be better able to hold off the Americans

Colonies loyalty might not identify with the new nation

They thought that their French would be lost

We stayed because

we wanted to build a railway

We wanted to say no:

The St. Lawrence would freeze and isolate us in the winter

Local power would be given away

The old ties with Britain might be hurt with a new nation
