  2. 2. The BNA Act • Canada became a country when the British Parliament passed the British North America Act • This process was in sharp contrast to the United States, which had declared itself a nation, fought a revolution, defeated the British, and formulated its own rules
  3. 3. The BNA Act • The BNA Act was based upon the Seventy-Two Resolutions agreed to at the Quebec Conference • Because of this, most of the BNA Act was written by Canadians, in Canada, and it became the constitution of the new Dominion • The result of intense negotiations between equal partners, the BNA Act is full of compromise
