I came from Canada West and a long time ago I did not support confederation.
I am born in Scotland and I am a skilled lawyer.
I am going to briefly talk about the problem of Political Deadlock.
And I am going to briefly talk about Western Expansion.
A political deadlock happens when equally powerful players in a decision making process cant agree on a course of action. The political structure of the province of BNA under the act of Union encouraged the development of political deadlocks.
This was because Canada east and west had an equal number of seats in the provinces assembly.
In 1860, immigrants to Canada west had developed nearly all the good farmland, I advocated expanding west into Rupert's land and I worried about American ambitions to claim Rupert's land.
