Confederation Achieved Confederation Achieved Presentation Transcript

  • Building A Confederation Achieved Nation
  • Towards Confederation • Before 1867, with the exception of Canada East and Canada West, the colonies of British North America were completely separate • Citizens of each colony were British subjects, and Britain was responsible for their well-being and defence • Colonies were only interested in Confederation if they received favourable terms
  • “Deal,” not “Ideal” • When Confederation was proposed, the colonies wanted to know how the deal would benefit them • Although Macdonald favoured a strong national government with limited powers for the provinces, very few colonial politicians agreed with this idea • People who lived outside central Canada were not excited about the idea of being ruled by a government in central Canada
