D Block Social Studies 10 - Today you can start with a pro/con chart on Confederation that I'll give you in class. After, we will look at the Charlottetown and Quebec conferences in August and October 1864. We'll talk about the circus atmosphere of the Charlottetown Conference and examine the outcomes of the week long discussion. Next we'll look at the Quebec conference and identify all of the political and logistical problems that the Founders of Confederation had to overcome. We'll figure out what the Quebec Resolutions (also called the 72 Resolutions) were and see how taxation and representation issues were deal breakers for PEI and Newfoundland.
