  • Confederation? Prince Edward Island What's In It For Us?
  • Here's What The Government Of P.E.I Has To Say...
  • Our voices will not be heard.  Other colonies get 82 or  65  seats in the   assembly.We'll have the least amount of seats.
  • Out of the    194 members of the parliament,  only 5 will represent  us!!!!! Ridiculous!!
  • Yes, We don't need to join them. 
  • What Do Some Of The Islanders Think?
  • We'll just get swamped in by the  larger colonies if we join Confederation.
  • I have a lot to say about Confederation, but I can't be in politics   because I'm a woman.
  • Life is so unfair.
  • What do our people  think of Confederation?  Do we need to join the other colonies?
  • What Do We Need?
  • What we need are railways on this island for  transportation.
  • Members of our island's government discuss matters at the  Charlottetown    Legislative. Date: November  10, 1864
  • I'm sick of these landlords. I don't want to keep on paying rent each year. They need to sell the land at a  good price.
  • Will Confederation Fix Our Problems?
  • Confederation won't help us with buying out  the absentee   landlords.
  • Our citizens discuss what they think of Confederation while walking through our roads. Date:   November   5, 1864
  •  The British Navy is close to us, in Nova Scotia. It would be hard for the U.S to invade us. We shouldn't worry. 
  • Will We Gain Anything?
  • If we do join Confederation, together we'll form a stronger army.
  • Our farmers discuss what we Islanders need, while   doing their jobs at their farm. Date: November 5, 1864
