Yuck
The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion … but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.

What I'm thinking is that there wouldn't be the sort of massive population boom in America as it happened in real life in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The British would seek to keep the colonies mainly agricultural, reliant on British industry through providing them raw resources for said manufacturing. Pro-Independence protests would probably happen to a large degree, but it'd likely lead to something resembling Canadian Confederation, but maybe across North America (in form of a Dominion of North America? Maybe? I don't know to be honest). I doubt Britain would buy Louisiana from the French in the 1800s, or seek expansion into Florida, though mass migration into Mexico and the establishment of "Yankee Republics" in what is now Mexican Cession, California, and Texas would be likely. Doubt it'd be like For the Want of a Nail though.

As for independence... well it's hard to think what would happen in an alternate history this far branching, but I'd say it would be part of a larger "British Commonwealth" similar to America, though whether it'd be in form of one large North America or several smaller dominions is another question.

The US promotes a lot of filth and exploitation around the world. Those living standards (which, having been to some rural parts of the US, I call into question) are built off of the backs of that.

Did you really live in Canada? America wouldn’t badmouth Canada, but it doesn’t go both ways. Being America 2 is embarrassing for Canadian progressives, so they pretend to be a distinct and more civilized country while coincidentally having a lot in common with America.

By "Having a lot in common" you mean "effectively having become culturally colonized by America in the recent 80 odd years to the point their talking points are almost indistinguishable". Then again, the alternative would be a white-majority rule colonial state so maybe the whole cultural colonization isn't all that bad.

While that is somewhat true, I believe that was because of Covid and the government's useless response to that. Now that it's much less of an issue, I expect that they will go back up.
