The natural environment of B.C. is less protected and soon it will probably be exploited.
B.C. will no longer have a Provincial Government, and will be changed into the fifty first state of America.
Effects in America...
America would benefit from B.C connecting Alaska to the rest of mainland U.S.A
America's economy has benefited through industries like mining, forestry, fishing, agriculture, and tourism
Should B.C have joined America, or is it better that B.C joined Canada?
My opinion on this topic is that it was a great decision that B.C joined Canada instead of America because I am a Canadian and I would want positive outcomes for my country. When thinking of B.C. Yes, joining Canada does have some negative elements. For example, B.C. would have little political influence and would be subject to policy decisions made far away. This is still a concern of westerners today. On the other hand, America doesn't have some benefits that Canada offers. For example, Canadians have access to free health care which is not an option for Americans. Another reason is America is not as safe of a country which would most likely be a concern for citizens in B.C.
