Key Players of Confederation

As a member of the Conservatives, Macdonald managed to unite French and English politicians. When he was five years old his family moved to Kingston in Upper Canada. When he was fifteen he began to study law, and by the time he was nineteen he had opened his own law office in Kingston. He quickly got a reputation for taking hard cases, and for being a skilful lawyer. Macdonald soon started his political career as a councillor for Kingston in 1843. Four years later he moved to provincial politics when he was elected as the Conservative party's member for Kingston in 1847.

In order to deal with the Province of Canada's economic and political problems, a group of politicians led by Macdonald came up with the idea of joining with the Maritime colonies to form a larger country. Macdonald was a driving force behind Confederation, and it was because of the important part that he played that he was asked to be Canada's first prime minister. He remained prime minister for most of the rest of his life. He died on June 6, 1891, soon after winning his fourth election.

Tupper was born in Amherst, Nova Scotia, on July 2, 1821. He was the premier of Nova Scotia who agreed to Confederation. His first job was as a doctor. Even after he became a politician, he still kept his medical bag under his seat in the House of Commons. He was a member of the Conservative party in Nova Scotia, and became premier in 1864.

Tupper was interested in joining Canada because he felt it would be good for Nova Scotia's economy. He participated in the Confederation conferences which led to Nova Scotia agreeing to join Confederation in 1867.

Once Nova Scotia was part of Canada Tupper quit his job as premier, and joined the federal Conservative party. He held several important jobs in the Conservative government ofSir John A. Macdonald. Tupper became prime minister in 1896. However he was only prime minister for ten weeks before losing the election that same year. Tupper retired from politics in 1900, and died on October 30, 1915.

When the premier, Charles Tupper, pushed Confederation through, Howe criticized him for going ahead with it when the people didn't want it. In the next election the people showed their anger at Tupper by voting him out. Howe and his anti Confederates were voted in. However, it was too late to undo Confederation. Howe eventually decided that he could best help his province by getting into the federal government. He believed that if he was in the federal government he could make sure Nova Scotia was treated well. He was appointed lieutenant governor of Nova Scotia in 1873, and died that same year.

Tilley was born at Gagetown, New Brunswick, on May 8, 1818. He became a pharmacist when he was 20 and ran a successful shop called "Tilley's Drug Store". Tilley became interested in politics and fought for responsible government. He became premier in 1861 and was responsible for bringing New Brunswick into Confederation.

Tilley wanted New Brunswick to join Canada, but after he returned from talks with Canadian leaders he learned the people of New Brunswick were against Confederation. He lost the next election because the public didn't want New Brunswick to join Canada. However, a year later the people had changed their minds about Confederation. In a new election Tilley won and became premier again.

Tilley was finally able to bring New Brunswick into Confederation. When New Brunswick became part of Canada, Prime Minister Sir John A. Macdonald invited Tilley to be a member of thefederal government. Tilley held several important jobs in the government, and later became the lieutenant governor of New Brunswick in 1873. He retired in 1893 and died on June 25, 1896.

Cartier was born at St. Antoine sur Richelieu in Lower Canada on September 6, 1814. He came from a wealthy family who claimed to be very distant relatives of the famous French explorer Jacques Cartier. He became a lawyer in 1835 and also got involved in the railway business. Cartier became active in politics in 1848 when he was first elected as a member of the Province of Canada'sAssembly. He later became leader of a political partycalled the Parti Bleu that joined with the Conservative Party of Upper Canada.

John A. Macdonald led the Conservatives, and together he and Cartier were co prime ministers of the Province of Canada. The two of them believed that forming a new, bigger country was the answer to the province's problems. Cartier was responsible for convincing most French Canadians that Confederation would be good for French Canada, as it would make Quebec a separate province. He died on May 20, 1873.
