Canadian Civil War by YNot1989 Canadian Civil War by YNot1989
2021: A combination of Ocean desalination, record droughts, and the near extinction of the Honey Bee, result in a world wide Famine, affecting even Canada which had become North America's breadbasket only a few years earlier.

2024: Food riots in Canada, and a nearly bankrupt government supported by loans from the US and the EU, leads to a complete breakdown of social order in many Canadian cities. Martial Law is declared in Montreal.

2025: Quebec closes its borders to protect its food supply. When the Canadian government orders the Province's leadership to step aside, Quebec secedes from Canada. A number of other Provinces quickly follow as a fight between them erupts over control of food supplies.

2027: The Canadian government collapses. The United States sends troops into Ontario to secure access to the Hudson Bay. Full scale war breaks out only when Eco Terrorists in what Americans refer to as "Canucka" (in reality a confederation between BC and the Yukon), destroy the Alaska Natural Gas Pipeline.

2033: US Vertical Farms in the North West and New England are completed, giving the nation's most densely populated areas access to a stable food supply. The last remaining rebels surrender if the US agrees to construct similar facilities in Canada's major cities. The US does so, but only after formally annexing Canada.

Isn't ninety-five percent of the remaining land in Quebec either English speaking, First Nation lands, or unpopulated?

Yes, but most of the population is French-Canadian, and demographics are what decides government jurisdiction (if you don't believe me ask a Native American about how little people care about who controls what if they don't got enough people to back it up).

Yes, but the Quebec independence people seem to recognize that the Natives of northern Quebec should be allowed to stay with whoever they want, though they don't recognize it for the English speaking southern portions of the province. Was all of Canada annexed after this war, or just the light blue areas?

So the USA doesn't give the rebel Canadian states back to Canada?

That's not very nice.

Good map by the way.

No offence but I find this scenario beyond doubtful, first off the Canadian military/ Canadian Armed Forces (CF) is heavily developed national service; also due to this national mindset and relative peaceful nature of Canada's populace there is no similar organization within Canada that could withstand CF for long. Furthermore all members of the CF swears allegiances to the Sovereign of Canada:

"I, [name], do swear (or solemnly affirm) that I will well and truly serve Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth the Second, Queen of Canada, Her heirs and successors according to law, in the Canadian Forces until lawfully released, that I will resist Her Majesty's enemies and cause Her Majesty's peace to be kept and maintained and that I will, in all matters pertaining to my service, faithfully discharge my duty. So help me God"

As shown in numerous usual violent native populace protest (see Oka Crisis, Burnt Church Crisis, Ipperwash Crisis) the CF totally steamrolled this protest within a matter of hours. Another reasoning would be that Canadian military by default has a highly developed internal manufacturing capacity, currently all basic small arms and all ammunition is produced local within the CF controlled locations.
The CF has one of the most highly developed C4ISTAR networks in the world, in addition to have vast sums of military war reserves (just google CFAD Beford, Borden, &Dundurn). So if even plausible Quebec or other provinces some how managed to develop a effective military in secret, the CF would simple destroy their ability to communicate and organize; thus destroying the isolated armed resistance at their choosing. A fine example of this from personal knowledge is our basic tac-net comm. set (i.e. portable section level radio, walkie talkie) has the ability to block all radio transmission within a three square kilometres radius, our platoon level assets have the ability to block a twenty square kilometres radius and this stuff is assigned to our reserve.

Ok, I smell nationalist fervor, but I'm more than guilty of that for my own country, so that's beside the point.

So, as I said by this point in history Canada's government is more or less bankrupt; and contrary to popular myth: No One, including soldiers, works for free. And when governments run out of money soldiers typically go home and fight to defend their families and friends, which usually results in them swearing loyalty to some local power.

All that pomp and talk of loyalty is straight up bullshit, designed to keep soldiers loyal; but again, unless they are being attacked by some single enemy that threatens everyone, soldiers usually abandon those loyalties once the money dries up.

The US only survives in this case due to some very wealthy backers who'd rather see our country on top. I won't mention US vs. Canadian military capability because... well its Canada.

To degree I can accept the concept of lack of money equals lack of loyalty ext... . However if you look to the decade of darkness the CF went through during the 1990; there was on occasion soldiers literal going to food banks to support their families because of lack of support of the government i.e. pay roll. I'm not sure how the U.S.A or any other country operates but I can assure that loyalty within the CF goes beyond pomp and talk. If all we cared about was money or wages then I personal can assure over half of the CF would already be looking for another job. Shit on my first course (BMQC) I wasn't paid at all until two months after the finished date; but regardless I stuck it out because I'm loyal to my regiment. We get sub wages and kit (stuff like grenades or anti-rockets that blow up before there supposed to on the range), but we stick it out because we are loyal to our regiments and military above else.

Either way still a pretty cool map; and all your stuff is amazing regardless.

Trust me, during a four year famine, your loyalties would eventually dry up. Every time such an event occurs the same thing happens: the soldiers go home and defend whatever they think they can still rely on. Human beings are pathetically predictable at the end of the day.

And I thank you for the compliment none the less.
