I’m glad we don’t have a parlimentary system where a coalition of groups can join together and effectively overturn the will of the people following a recent election like in Canada.

Or you could live in CA like me where we passed Prop 8 [twice] ... and the state is still going to overturn it.

BTW, why did Canada never rebel and leave Britain?

Canada was the ‘good son’ who honored it’s father’s wishes and stayed loyal to King George, as opposed to those ungrateful scalawags and rebels in the American colonies, lol

Because the British weren't stupid a second time. When Canada was ready for independence they got it.

Because after losing the Revolutionary war, Britain became afraid of the same thing happening in Canada so they gave us just enough freedom to keep us from rising up against them, but not the full measure you Americans have (no gun rights or property rights in our constitutions)

Plus, all the Americans who wanted to stay British moved up here to get away from becoming a citizen in a free republic.
