comment Why did Canada not join the American Revolution?
@TomAu It is important to note that there was good logic behind the British decision to give Quebec control over the Midwest. The Indians there were allied with the French against the British colonies during the 7years war (1750s). When the Americans did enter the midwest there was war...a war Britain could not be bothered with as it was already fighting in Europe.

comment Approximately what was the short-term economic loss to Britain as a result of the Revolutionary War being lost?
Lost tax revenue... which was rather insignificant. Also, lost military recruits. What about the costs of future wars? (1812) Hypothetical losses are rather difficult to determine.

comment How did Quebec transition from French Law to English Law?
Britain did not impose British law on the French people of Quebec before the Quebec Act of 1774. What occurred in 1873 to begin the transition to more French influence?

@MichaelF I edited out the speculation, but it is more than slightly ironic that England broke-off the revolutionary war to counter the French threat in Europe, which was indirectly protecting the newly formed USA.
