Many people believed that they didn't want to be governed by a country an ocean away, and it took many days to be able to send messages, so there is very low communication, and they wanted to trade to a place nearby. Then, on 1867, 4 colonies, Canada West, Canada East, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick joined together to make the dominion of Canada, and then, the other colonies, like British Columbia, joined later on.
