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.
