The US played an important role in WWII, no doubt, but this is an amateurish assessment of the history of WWII - and I suspect about a million dead Russians on the Eastern front would disagree with this assessment, but I digress...
As for the 'they need us more than we need them' commentary - again, an amateurish assessment of global affairs layered with patriotic chest thumping. If you think the US doesn't reap rewards - material, opaque or otherwise - in the realm of national security from its investments in Europe etc. then you are kidding yourself. America won't benefit if the world goes to shit. So, while you may pout because you don't think Europeans kiss the ring of America frequently or passionately enough and use that as justification to advance some 'retreat, lock the hatches, f'ck them all - that'll show'em' foreign policy - it won't be to the benefit of the United States.
As for the OP - Canada and the US have a long, deep, economic, cultural and social relationship that is much bigger than one man - so, while the relationship will likely benefit from more predictability and less trade disputes, I don't see there being a massive change to what has been a long standing, mutually beneficial relationship that has survived different Presidents and PM's over the decades.
