Classical Conversations Cycle 1 Week 22


What was the British North American Act?

Canada_provinces_1867-1870The British North American Act (BNA) came as a result of the leaders in eastern Canada wanting to unite the three remaining British colonies. The BNA was presented to the British parliament in 1866 and was passed on July 1st. The three colonies that were united were Novia Scotia, New Brunswick, and the separate British colonies of Canada. These colonies became the Dominion of Canada. The BNA served as the constitution of Canada until 1982.


What did the “Dominion of Canada” mean?

800px-Peace_monument_Belle_IsleThe Dominion of Canada was chosen instead of Kingdom of Canada to avoid offending the U.S. by forming a kingdom on its northern border. The Dominion would have relatively autonomy (independent, but still under Britain rule) under the political protection and control of Great Britain.


How did Canada gain total independence from Britain?

After WWII, Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau presented a new constitution to the British Parliament. This constitution was called the Canada Act, which kept ties to the British monarchy, but claimed total autonomy from Great Britain. In March 1982, the British passed the Canada Act.

Why is French spoken in Quebec?

Francophone (French-speaking) Canadians in Quebec struggled to reclaim their French culture. They posed a Quiet Revolution by lobbying for French to be the national language. Although Canada did not solely adopt French as their language, they have declared themselves as a bilingual society that will offer all federal services in French and English.
