America provides myself and many other countries with military security, and I'm very grateful, but they don't tell Canadians what do to in terms of domestic policy. They have no rule over me. I do think there's a Canadian identity, even if for some it's weak, but there's other aspects to everyone identity other than "Canadian". I'm an anglo Canadian, for instance. I'm not a French Canadian, but we're both Canadian. I don't think anyone needs to give up their ethnic culture, but politically when a Canadian swears allegiance to the Queen of Canada and their heirs & successors it means that when push comes to shove they should politically support Canada over any other sovereign country. If you have a conflict of interest you shouldn't take the oath, and dual citizenship shouldn't exist. You're free to think of Canada however you choose.
