ceitagh BS: Cultural differences: Canada/U.S. (121* d) RE: BS: Cultural differences: Canada/U.S. 14 Apr 00


Javelin...who wants to compete? Confederation was a sort of mutual defense strategy that Upper Canada (who had the army) offered Eastern canada...and they took the deal 'cause of those pesky fenians from across the border who kept trying to get back at the British by attacking us. If it weren't for that bunch of expat Irish with guns leftover from the revolutionary war, Canada would extend from Quebec westwards, and who knows what the maritimes would be doing?

But the railroad played a big part later on, when we started offering huge chunks of practically free prairie to immigrants.
