It's only the beginning by Alt-Reality It's only the beginning by Alt-Reality
The idea for this was from reading about the possibility of the US purchasing the Hudson Bay territory . . . and it just spiraled from there.

Very interesting.  I take it New Mexico is sort of Mexicans that didn't want to live under French rule?

I like it, except for the little spike north that Texas and New Mexico get. Not really sure what the story behind that is...

Very nice map, but I must state one thing - if Winnipeg is not in Canada, then the everything west of Ontario isn't. It's just how Canada's always been laid out.

It's alternate history; Expansion of Canada could have been different.

I'm from Winnipeg, so it's extremely difficult for me to think the border any farther north, especially having been through some of the territory north of the line on this map.

Western Canada being part of Canada is already very illogical anyways, and forcing the border past the south end of Lake Winnipeg would cause too much economic strain to make a united East and West feasible, especially with cutting out a vast majority of the arable land of Western Canada too.

If Western Canada was it's own country,  what should it be called?

The problem is that it wouldn't be one country. It came to be in it's own sense because of westward expansion, so if it were to become its own country in that sense, it would just be Western Canada. Whereas if it was formed from the West, formed from the West and split up, or formed organically like most nations, the name(s) would be vastly different.

So yeah, it really depends on how much change in history you really want.

Kind of reminds me of Decades of Darkness with New England on its own. The US planning on conquering the rest down the line? Hint, hint.

Nah, not really; Texas and New Mexico act as an effective buffer zone. But whether they'll go northward is another matter. :D

I like how you make these maps, the nations actually seem probable (no Deseret or Republic of Quebec).

But why you say that Deseret and Republic of Quebec are not probable ?

Deseret
Deseret is basically an independent state of Utah, which has very few people living in it, and few natural resources. Not exactly the recipe for a successful nation.

Quebec
Way too common in alt/future history, Quebec is not self-sufficient resource wise or financially and could never actually separate from Canada because of its large Anglo population in its major population centres (Montreal and Quebec City) and large Native population in its north.

always with the unique and ever so different national borders and yet your trademark style of having several nations in what is our Southwest and a Russian Alaska.
