Now I’m going tell about the wonderful world of Canadian history. There are key factors that led some colonies to join Confederation. The colonies that joined Confederation in 1867 were Canada East, Canada West, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick one of the factors that led some colonies to join Confederation was the issue of trade. BNA could not complete with trade in Britain because of Britain’s anti Corn Law. Britain’s anti corns law placed tariffs on imported grains which meant the BNA no longer had
The British states that the Boer war was an imperial war, meaning it was a concern to the entire empire. If Canada doesn 't help in the war and Britain loses it would then impact Canada, as Canada is still some what part of the British empire. For instance, trade would be impacted. If the British were to lose they would no longer have their ports at the South African continent therefore, anything that was once imported from or through South Africa into Canada wouldn 't be any more. In addition, being a part of the British Empire calls Canadians to help in order to demonstrate not only loyalty but also a form of a precedent.
Before the Constitution, Canada was not entirely an independent country. This is because Britain had the power to change and adjust the constitution whenever they wanted. This meant to become independent, they had to patriate the constitution from Britain. It originally was called the British North American Act however due to the adjustment of the act the name changed. Canada had many problems that needed fixing and their independency is what let them add and adjust the rules to make Canada a better place for all people.
Here are some reasons why confederation was a significant part of history. Reason number is so that Canada would gain independence from Britain. The colonies were under britain laws and they wanted to get rid of that so they wanted to get rid of that, Britain was also going to stop funding the colonies meaning that since Canada joined they didn’t have to worry about Britain
In present day canada, many foreigners come from far and wide, whilst leaving their families behind in hopes of a better life for them and their children to come. Believing Canada is a land of opportunity, however was Canada always considered “the highway to a better life”?In the late 18 hundreds, Canada did not provide equal opportunities for all.People of different races, genders, and classes faced mass extents of discrimination. People with money were people with power, in repercussion for the industrialization of the late 18 century and the invention of the steam engine, the poor got poorer and and the rich richer, whilst creating a considerable wage gap. Finally the Canadian government treated people that were not of their ideal image
As British Columbia became larger talks about it joining confederation began to arise. Confederationists began to propose the idea of BC joining Canada, but a large amount of people also wanted to join the United States or maintain ties with Britain. A hearing was held that had equal sides anti-confederationists and confederationists. Just then Governor Seymour died and Anthony Musgrave was appointed to become his replacement. Musgrave went around to the annexationists and anti-confederationists winning them over and getting terms from them.
As a result this would make Canada more progressive in woman rights, politically and socially, even being granted to vote under certain circumstances during the war due a pending election. However because of the war, relations between English and French would divide even more due to conflicting opinions, on whether the war was Canada fight or not. So the result of the war did have its negative effects on post war Canada. Regardless because of the war Canada came out as a both stronger and healthier nation, for without the war we may not have received the recognition, the respect, admiration and most importantly the eventual full independence from Britain. For if the war never happened we may not be the nation we are
Another steps to become an independent country Britain being the Empire of Canada, England had significant amount of control over Canada’s external affairs. When Halibut Treaty was signed between Canada and America, Canada just took another step towards its independence of England and being its own country and not a dominion. The Halibut Treaty was signed on 2 March, 1923 between Canada and America. This treaty was a huge step for Canada, as it basically meant that Canada would trade with United States more often. This treaty was mainly created because of concerns in fishing rights in the Pacific Ocean.
The relationship between the United States and Canada is another great result of the interplay of democracy and political culture and one of the greatest results of the was the NAFTA. There have always been people who were not particularly happy with the relationship of Canada and U.S, especially those who felt like it was not benefitting Canada, and there also people who doubted that the free trade agreement would ever work. As Inwood states, “the great debate that raged in Canada around the 1988 election concerning free trade was deeply resonant of the political culture of the country and touches on all aspects of public administration” (p.47). The arguments against free trade stated that Canada would not be able to integrate well into the system and that there would be more to lose than gain, while continentalists felt that it was nothing more than an opportunity and economic arrangement (Inwood, p.47). Canada had to make sacrifices when it came down to decision-making and traditional trade remedies, “Moreover, in political culture terms, the free trade debate has become a flash point for those who argue for the supremacy of the free market versus those who argue for a positive, interventionist state-all of which has a direct impact on public administration” (Inwood, 47) The following (Figure 4) is a table of pros and cons that were brought up during the great debate in regards to how the free trade would affect the Canadian
A very controversial topic in the past few years has been immigration. Immigration is better for Canada because it helps introduce different cultures, increase Canada 's growth, and raise economic worth. Canada is well known for its diverse cultures. Immigration helps introduce many new cultures to Canada, aiding it to keep the diverse, vibrant and accepting identity that Canada currently has today (Vaughan). The reason immigration helps give Canada the identity it has today is because if Canada didn 't accept immigrants it would be less diverse and more un-inclusive.
The Second World War was a national crisis in Canada by the time St Laurent joined office and King needed a person to represent Quebec’s views. Prime Minister King was in a lot of pressure to implement conscription but that was very difficult because he promised to not implement conscription. He had to pass Bill 80 that would repeal the inability to implement conscription. Quebec was the only province apposed the government policy but St Laurent delivered a speech to resolve the issue. He talked about Quebec nationalism and was able to convince the people of
The United States started with The Articles of Confederation and while it was the first official unionization for the country, there were many weaknesses in it; we were unable to function efficiently as a whole. A federal system would be more beneficial over a confederation because it would give all provinces the opportunity to send a representative for their area to represent their needs and there would be a balance in power so that no area is being favored over the
The only target of the political parties is to come in power. They consistently try some new convincing techniques to increase the number of voters in their favor. Political parties constantly try to show them to be a superior party over the other ones which includes the use of the different kind of cogent techniques. Party leaders try to show that their party will always work for the better future of Canada and Canadians, but did not show that potential after coming in
