Hey my name is Agam and today ill be doing a presentation on confederation. The words on the top left is my slogan of my presentation
Firstly, ill be talking about political deadlock. Political deadlock was caused due to equal number of seats in the Legislative Assembly. Both Canada East And West had different interests, language and religion. The 2 sides would always vote against each other and no new laws were getting passed. This was called Political Deadlock
Is this true that the population of the province of Canada was growing and the biggest increase was in the English speaking region of Canada West (Ontario). But the parliament was still split with 50-50 seats.
Oh my god yes this is all correct. You guys are very smart! George Brown also thought this was unfair and they started to call for "Rep By Pop" which meansRepresentation By Population
But weren't there 3 conditions which were : The coalition would work toward creating a large United Federation of all of BNA
Government of Canada and future union would be based on Rep By Pop and federation will expand westward to the northwest and perhaps even to the Pacific before the Americans.
The solution was at June 24 1864, George Brown agreed to end political deadlock by joining John A McDonald and George Cartier.
Yes you guys are all right
Next I will talk about The Need For A Railway. A railway was needed to link all colonies so they could increase trade and move troops .In case the US started a war, the railway would help move troops easier. They all had there own railway but it never linked together. The St. Lawrence River froze which stopped water transportation, a railway would increase the speed of trade and mail. If the railway was built each colony could split the cost to make it.
