He contributed to the drafting and completion of the 72 Resolutions, a set of proposals made at the Quebec Conference in 1864. Unfortunately, he lost his seat in the Assembly alongside of many supporters of Confederation that were driven out of the office in 1865 election. He returned to the Assembly during the 1866 by-election. His 1866’s campaign was very imprecise, promoting New Brunswickers to be for and against Confederation. However, once he entered the office, he became the key figure for a creation of a new nation.
In 1779 Sir Alexander Mackenzie (Fur trader and explorer) reaches Canada. Mackenzie was one of the first European explorer to cross North America. He had a lot of part in the North West Company with trading. Later in his life Mackenzie would go on to do many things one being his trips to the oceans in 1789 he made it to the Arctic Ocean and in 1793 he made to the Pacific Ocean. Mackenzie also wrote a book called “Voyages from Montreal to the Frozen and Pacific Oceans”.
On every Canada Day Maple Tree is planted. In 2017 in order to celebrate 150th anniversary maple trees were planted in 44 Wards of the city of Toronto. The great commercial value of the hard, durable maple wood is overshadowed by the worldwide fame of maple sugar and syrup. The maple leaf has long been considered an appropriate emblem for Canada. Maple leaves were used in coats of arms granted in 1868 to Ontario and Québec and the Canadian coat of arms granted in 1921.
This event by itself shaped a lot of what the united states is today and it’s one of my personal favorites. The industrial revolution, in simple terms began in Great Britain in the late 1700’s . Many of the first few innovations from this time period concluded from the textile industry, which means that instead of cotton for clothing being produced in homes, it would now be moved into big factories for production. Britain at the time was a place that had plenty of resources such as coal and iron required to run the machines they used for cloth production. The industrial revolution has many inventions that have shaped our production and other things but this was just a simple version of one
"Striving for success without hard work is like trying to harvest where you haven 't planted" stated by David Bly. The Erie Canal was started in 1817 and finished in 1825. It is 363 miles long and ran from Rome to Buffalo in New York. How did the Erie Canal change the United States? The Erie Canal changed the United States through increasing the economy, transportation/trade, and this all led to women 's rights.
It gave Canada a voice in trade agreements that helped Canada trade with other countries WWII also shaped Canada by giving it an industrial boom. Canada provided Great Britain with war materials, such as; aircraft and small arms needed to fight the War, plus food to feed the British people when they were cut off by the German U-boat blockade. According to the Canadian Encyclopedia: “There was large production of aircraft, including Lancaster bombers; and the greatest triumph of the program was in the field of military vehicles, of which 815,729 were made.” Britain could not pay for it all and by the end of the war, they owed Canada over three billion dollars. This industrial boom is one reason Canada has been able to have such a
Additionally, the industrialization created a demand for the buffalo pelts for the production of machinery belts. The 2 companies were in competition with each other until they were amalgamated into one company in 1822.  The competition with each other to sell to the Europeans also became a competition to reach the First Nations people first and appeal to them for trading. The trading incentive was European rum and brandy that was diluted in a ratio of 7:1 and packaged in skins or small kegs.
A buffalo is a very important to the first Nations that's why it is displayed on my first stamp. First Nations used the buffalo for very significant things one of the most important thing was for food. They made a special traditional food called Pemmican witch is dried buffalo smashed together with flour and berries. The first nations needed buffalo to survive but sadly the buffalo was rushed away when the Europeans showed up and took over the First Nations land and that when the treaty 1 started. The numbered treaties is displayed on my stamp because Canada and the First Nations needed to agree on land but these two group of people used land very differently.
The Effects of European Colonization and Exploration on the American Indians The first evidence showing that American Indians inhabited the North American continent indicated that they migrated from Siberia, most likely crossing the Bering Land Bridge, over eleven thousand years ago. From there, the American Indians became a nomadic people and roamed the continent until they found a region that suited their needs for food, water, and shelter. The American Indians living on the east coast and on river inlets were the first to encounter the Europeans, who some American Indians, especially the Aztecs, believed to be gods because of their shiny, silver armor, ship sails that looked like clouds, and their loud, unrecognizable weapons. This belief
The Industrial Revolution was a period of time from the late eighteenth century to the mid-late nineteenth century, in which industry flourished. After this original period of revolution, however, many other industrial booms occurred throughout Europe and the wold. This period, which played a prominent role in the development and modernization of Europe, first occurred in Britain. The Industrial Revolution started in Britain due its agricultural, political and intellectual climates which were ripe for industrial success, and its various advantageous geographical features. Britains success in agriculture in the century prior to the Industrial Revolution contributed to its success in industrial expansion.
The English established posts in the Hudson River Valley and, allied with the Iroquois, engaged in a fierce competition with the French traders (allied mainly with the Hurons) for control of the trade in the central interior region. Until the early 18th century most of the latter were organized as independent proprietors or partnerships but, as the Montreal-based trade expanded further into the continental interior, increasing amounts of capital were required and a number of larger organizations were formed. Most of these were financed by wealthy Montreal "bourgeois", some of whom organized small companies to lease trading posts and hire workers to voyage west each spring with trade goods and bring back furs in the fall. (Some historians speculate that these fur-trading groups, largely concentrated in Montreal, constituted the beginning of a local, French Canadian business class, the further development of which was cut short by the British conquest in the 1760’s.) The trade goods they used were usually obtained through other Montreal merchants, some of whom also acted as intermediaries in marketing the furs in France.
In 1534, the Aboriginal and Europeans came into contact plenty. Their contact expanded because of a French explorer, Jacques Cartier. He was a very famous explorer, who made the first trip to North America in search of finding gold for the king of France. On the way to North America he encountered an ethnic group along the Atlantic Coast. This group was known as the Mi’kmaq, and they wanted to trade their furs for European iron goods.
During the years between 1854 to 1864, the province of Canada was changing governments frequently, which made it very difficult for them to make important decisions. Many politicians in both Canada West and Canada East thought that the solution would be to create a new country called Canada. Both Canada West and Canada East would have their own governments, but the government in Ottawa would make the really important decisions for the whole country. Leaders in both Canada East and West also believed that it would make the economy stronger if they united. Shortly after Canada East and West united, Nova Scotia joined Canada because a railroad was promised to the new province.
Mr. Blackshaw had discovered Blackstone Lake and liked it. Just before the WWII he purchased a small peninsula from the Armstrong farm with a good view of the lake. There also was the road passing just 300 m to the north if he could get road allowance permission — and that would grow into an enduring issue to many of the ensuing owners. At the time of purchase Orville was a retail salesman on his way to being an assistant manager in Toronto.
During the war, Canada was Britain’s largest exporter of supplies and war materials. The London Free Press of August 24, 1939 stated that Canada was expected to “lead all the dominions in export of arms and materials to the mother country in the event of war” (Santor, 6). From 1939 to 1945, Canada created a total of 900k rifles, 815k military vehicles, 244k machine guns, 16k aircraft, 6.5k tanks, 3.3k landing craft, 487 escort ships, 410 merchant ships, and 254 navy tugs (Santor, 8). About 70% of all war production manufactured by Canada went overseas. In January of 1942, Canada made its first comprehensive attempt to help Britain finance the war, Canada — knowing that Britain had no feasible way to pay for it — gave Britain war munitions worth $1 billion, nicknamed the ‘Billion Dollar Gift’, as well as an interest free loan of $700 million.
