Treaty of Washington
an agreement signed in Washington, D.C. on May 8, 1871 by the United States and Great Britain that provided for both countries to submit their disputes to arbitration (Tribunal of Arbitration), stipulated that Britain would pay $37,500,000 as direct indemnity (compensation for damage), pay for shipping sunk as decided by an Admiralty Court in New York City, grant to the United States perpetual rights to navigate the St. Lawrence River through Quebec, and provided for boundary agreements re the Lake of the Woods and Point Roberts, B.C.

If Canada was really a confederation and became a nation in 1867, Britain couldn't have then agreed to this, as it would have been out of her realm. Canada's myth of confederation in 1867 is still taught by those ignorant of the facts, and Canada still celebrates its 'birthday' every July 1st, calculating its age dating back to 1867, erroneously claiming that in 2008 Canada will be 141 years old. Ha! She's not even born yet!

Canada, not having any say of her own in affairs affecting her, could say little of any impact as the US and Britain put any concerns by Canadians on the back burner by means of this Treaty of Washington, allowing equal navigation of the St. Lawrence River where it traverses the Province of Quebec; relinquishing the territories of the Lake of the Woods, Point Roberts and the San Juan Islands.(northwestern Washington, at the entrance to Puget Sound. The islands lie to the east of Vancouver Island, B.C.), and granting equal rights for ten years to the fisheries. This could not have happened had Canada been a country on her own, as she would not have been responsible for the things that occurred the US was demanding reparation from Britain for..(this occurred 4 years after Canada'a supposed confederation on July 1, 1867; the belief that Canada has confederated is contrary to fact, proving some past to recent government administrations in Canada have been feeding us fiction)

One major point at issue was an American demand that Britain pay reparations for Union ships destroyed during the American Civil War by Confederate raiders built and equipped in England (see Alabama Claims in an encyclopedia). Also at issue was the San Juan Boundary Dispute involving rival claims by the two nations to the San Juan islands at the north end of Puget Sound. The islands could have belonged to either country because of faulty wording in the treaty that settled the Northwest Boundary Dispute in 1846. Both points were eventually settled in favor of the U.S. The treaty also provided for a commission to settle the North Atlantic fishing dispute; as a result both countries exchanged various fishing, navigational and customs privileges in North America..Comprised with Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 Microsoft Corporation.
