The French Conquest, the Fur trading, the constant wars against the Indians, The English Settlers, the 7 Years war, the change of Canada from majority of French to a British country, the American revolution, the loyalist migration to Upper Canada, the continues fight for responsible government, War of 1812, more fighting and debate for responsible Government, republican sentiment, the Lower and Upper Canadian Rebellions (This is very Quebec/Ontario focused right now), the granting of Responsible Government and joining of Upper/Lower Canada to create the Province of Canada, political deadlock for a good 20 years, confederation, expanding west, North West Rebellion, build a rail way from the Atlantic Sea to Pacific, building and populating a vast empty landscape continues till the Second Boer War, First World War, inter-war period and depression, Second World War, Korean War, Cold War, Iraq, Post 9/11, Afghanistan, and now we've reached today.
Everything until after the War of 1812 is pretty interesting. Even the War of 1812 is kind of boring. You got the canadian militia rather easily resisting the american invasion, then brits burn Washington D.C. After that, it's a bunch of boring shit.
>>77871 Not a myth. Just a misconception, but it's not that far from the truth. The Duchy of Burgundy, which was a vassal state of France, got their asses kicked by them so hard they stopped existing after their disastrous war with the swiss. The Burgundian ruler died and the lands passed to France and the Habsburgs.
Why is Canada so boring anyway? I like to imagine Canada is like USA's retarded younger brother. USA keeps Canada in the dark from the evils of the outside world, so they just live a peaceful but rather uneventful life while the USA handles all the shit.

>>78162 >>78186 Yeah seriously America is like the loud retarded brother we feel like we have to apologize for. It's also why we're so insulted when people think we're American cause it's literally like them thinking we're some annoying loud retard who shits themselves at the thought of change.
I've actually been reading up more on their federal elections of the past 40 years, it's amazing how the Progressive Conservative Party went from having a majority to losing every single one of its seats in 1993 and going into splinter factions.
Also that guy from that Quebec Party is kind of interesting although I don't know much about the whole Quebec independence movement.
