(One view of Canadian Confederation is that the different provinces united to stop from being annexed into the US.)
I've never seen any evidence of *that*. The US has never forcibly attempted to annex Canada or any part of it, that I'm aware of.
Some aspects of the war of 1812 involved an attempted American Annexation of Canada.
There seems to be some debate on that point. Linky

And in any case, I believe Canadian confederation didn't occur until *decades* afterward? So it can hardly be considered a direct response.
