It is my opinion that confederation between all of British North America is almost absolutely necessary. Seperated, our futures are very uncertain, but if we are joined there is a higher chance of survival. Economically, we are hardly strong enough to survive on our own. What is really need is some foreign capital, this is the only way that we can get the money to build railways and other public works which are necessities in order to continue our existence. The only problem here is that foreign investors are scared to put money into colonies which may or may not be within a few years.
On the other hand, a Canada which is united could quite possibly be a better prospect. If the colonies were in union, they could stimulate trade by providing access to bigger markets. Also this would make it a lot easier to build railways, they would be in a good position to take over land, which would allow settlement for all those young people who are now moving to the United States. In addition to the economic advantages of confederation, we would be strengthened against possible threats from the United States.
After all, let’s not forget when there was the big scare of whether or not we would be the target of American anger after the Union won the Civil War, and I don’t think anyone will forgive them when they decided not to renew the Reciprocity Treaty of 1854. Therefore, both militarily and economically, a union of the British North American colonies promises some protection against any moves the Unites States might make, which would make us much better off than we are at the moment.
