Short Answer Questions
1. Native peoples in Canada tended to be overlooked, unless their land was needed or they were needed for labour. Native peoples had been forced onto reserves, most of them outside main settlement areas. But disputes over land became common as miners and settlers required more land to explore and farm. Even though treaties had been signed, prospectors often ignored boundaries of Native lands. As demand for farmland grew, Native peoples were pressured to sell or rent their best land to Europeans. Because their way of life had been disrupted and many Native people had became impoverished, they had little choice. Native land-claim disputes became common, however, and persist to this day. Native peoples were under extreme pressure to assimilate, but they preserved their customs and languages.

Chapter:2 QUESTION: 1

2. Agreement: Victorian Canadians believed in imperialist superiority, but today Canadians value social equality. Victorian Canadians did not have access to the kind of global information that Canadians do today, so their view of the world was more limited. [Some students might note that Victorian Canada was in the grip of the Industrial Revolution, whereas Canada today is experiencing an "information revolution."] Disagreement: Victorian ways of expressing themselves may have been different from ours, but many aspects of their societyÄÄmaterialism; national pride ["imperialism" for Victorians]; a preoccupation with social status; a sense of technological accomplishment; a fascination with entertainment stars; games, and so onÄÄparallel today's society.

Chapter:2 QUESTION: 2

3. Railways were essential in creating Canada's infrastructure. They dramatically improved the speed and efficiency of communication, travel, and the shipment of goods. These advances helped to create a great surge in prosperity in the 1850s and 1860s. During the Confederation debates, the promise of a railway to link all of British North America may have been the deciding factor. In this sense, the railway may have been responsible for the creation of Canada as we know it.

Chapter:2 QUESTION: 3

4. The advantages of Confederation included: a strong central government; more economic stability; reduction of intercolonial tariffs and trade barriers; stronger defence from the threat of American invasion and/or annexation; the promise of an intercolonial railway to link all of British North America; and, possibly, a reduced level of French-English tensions.

Chapter:2 QUESTION: 4

5. Only a coordinated effort would have worked to end the deadlock in governments. The cooperation between Cartier, and Macdonald and Brown (who were avowed enemies), was crucial to the development of Confederation. Cartier could represent the concerns of French-Canadians, while Macdonald and Brown showed how very different views could compromise enough to support the idea of Confederation. Their travelling to Charlottetown to gain Maritime support for Confederation was a turning point.

Chapter:2 QUESTION: 5

6. Under the British North America Act, the federal government had power over national matters (for example: trade and commerce, defence, currency, banking, postal service, criminal law, and so on). The provincial governments had power over regional matters (for example: management of provincial lands, management of hospitals, marriage, provincial taxation, and so on). Macdonald had envisioned a much stronger central government, but he had to compromise in order for an agreement to be reached.

Chapter:2 QUESTION: 6

7. The American Civil War demonstrated that the federal union that held the US together was weak, and dangerously so. In British North America, it also fueled fears that the Americans might invade Canada. American Manifest Destiny was also a threat to British colonies. Finally, the Fenian Raids, though small, demonstrated the need for a stronger British North America that could defend itself from invasion.

Chapter:2 QUESTION: 7

8. Newfoundland was isolated from the rest of British North America, and it had almost no trade with Canada. Because of their location, Newfoundlanders did not view the Americans as a threat. Again, because of geography, Newfoundlanders saw no great benefit in the promise of an intercolonial railway.

Chapter:2 QUESTION: 8

Skills Questions
1. The photograph shows dust on an overhead pipe, a mess on the floor, and the doctors and nurses are not wearing gowns, gloves, or masks.

Chapter:2 QUESTION: 1

2. Anesthesia made the operations possible, as is shown here, but poor hygiene could lead to infection, which could kill the patient.

Chapter:2 QUESTION: 2

3. The editorial states that universities are funded by public money, and so women should be entitled to seek admittance. It states that girls are encouraged to attend parish schools, so they should not be excluded from universities. The university's decision was based on custom, not on evidence or laws.

Chapter:2 QUESTION: 3

4. The author supports the right of women to be admitted to universities, therefore he/she feels strongly that the university has no justification for its action.

Chapter:2 QUESTION: 4

5. Timber represented about half of all forest products shipped through Saint John.

Chapter:2 QUESTION: 5

6. In terms of total exports, forest products were least important in Prince Edward Island.

Chapter:2 QUESTION: 6

7. from Canada: 66.8% [á1 164 624 / á1 742 665]; from the Maritimes: 33.2% [(á522 081 +á14 506 + á41 454 = á578 041 / á1 742 665]

Chapter:2 QUESTION: 7

8. New Brunswick exported more than twelve times as much in forest products than did Nova Scotia, far out of proportion to its size relative to Nova Scotia. As well, New Brunswick exported a wider variety of forest products (as can be seen in the various pie charts). This would indicate that either the forest industry was more developed in New Brunswick or that New Brunswick had more forests than Nova Scotia.

Chapter:2 QUESTION: 8

9. Joseph Howe lists several reasons the Confederation is a bad idea: Canada is neither homogeneous nor harmonious; Canada is split by French-English conflicts; Canada is shut out from the outer world by frost for five months a year; Canada is at the mercy of a powerful neighbour (the US); and Canada's border is "defenceless."

Chapter:2 QUESTION: 9

10. Macdonald promotes Confederation for several reasons: the British colonies need a strong central government; an intercolonial railway will be possible only with Confederation; Halifax would benefit economically; the West would have a port to ship its goods to the world; union would lead to a constitution.

Chapter:2 QUESTION: 10

11. The provincial governments can not undertake transportation or communication projects that 1) connect with other provinces and 2) connect with other nations. Provincial governments can not undertake transportation works within the province, if the federal government decides it is to the general advantage of Canada.

Chapter:2 QUESTION: 11

12. The federal government has wider powers, for example, postal service, defence, currency, and banking.

Chapter:2 QUESTION: 12

13. It could be considered dangerous because the wording is vague and allows the national government to impose any "mode" or "system" of taxation.
