    Canada successfully separated from the states. That was some time ago, and i'm not aware of any successful attempts, since then.

    I wasn't aware that Canada was ever part of the United States.

    'Canada was never part of the United States.'

    True. It's more accurate to say that canada resisted assimilation by the usa. It is significant that many of those in upper canada were americans who had gradually migrated there.

    'Upper Canada (modern southern Ontario) had mostly been settled by Revolution-era exiles from the United States (United Empire Loyalists) or postwar American immigrants. The Loyalists were hostile to union with the United States, while the immigrant settlers were generally uninterested in politics and remained neutral or supported the British during the war. The Canadian colonies were thinly populated and only lightly defended by the British Army. Americans then believed that many men in Upper Canada would rise up and greet an American invading army as liberators. That did not happen. One reason American forces retreated after one successful battle inside Canada was that they could not obtain supplies from the locals. [ 42 ] But the Americans thought that the possibility of local support suggested an easy conquest, as former President Thomas Jefferson believed: "The acquisition of Canada this year, as far as the neighborhood of Quebec, will be a mere matter of marching, and will give us the experience for the attack on Halifax, the next and final expulsion of England from the American continent."'
