Ambrose Shea

Ambrose Shea was pro confederation but many of the people in his colony didn't agree and were outraged. Ambrose tried to contribute by helping found a Reform Party and to also promote the railroad being built. Shea was forced to go against Charles Fox Bennett and his pro union was defeated.The pros of confederation would of course be more access to trade and other resources. Cons are the costs of railways and the potential invasiveness that would come with that.
