Agreed. Canadian identity is founded on not being American. English Canada was essentially founded by American Loyalists who fled the aftermath of the American War for Independence. Their old national anthem, The Maple Leaf Forever, celebrates the British victory against the Americans in the War of 1812. The most conservative Canadians, the ones to whom conservative Americans would be sympathetic, have a strong attachment to their British roots and the monarchy we can never share.

North is north, and south is south, and never the twain shall meet.
