Author Comments

In part one, the political loggerhead between Canada East and West becomes the catalyst for change in the North American British colonies. But Albert J. Smith is looking for an equitable deal for New Brunswick. We’ll tell you how he won the New Brunswick provincial election in 1865 that effectively put Canadian Confederation on hold.

Being from the States, I know very little of Canadian history. This was very interesting and informative. Well done!

Thanks for taking the time to watch it! Well, there's a little taste of America in part two. Politicians in favour of Confederation used the fear of American invasions to push people into voting for it. Our smaller colonies in the Maritimes had a great relationship with the Americans whereas the central colonies (Ontario & Quebec) didn't. Wedge politics played a big role in the formation of our country and left some lasting marks that still exist today.
