Political Deadlock

La Fontaine was a very important person who worked for La Survivance. He believed French Canandians had to vote. The political leaders living in Canada at the time with the largest number of seats had quite a bit of power. There were many changes in power between 1854 and 1864.

Political Deadlock

Francis Hincks took over for Balwin in 1851. He was in conflict with George Brown. Brown started The Globe (which was a newspaper). He also supported the idea of rep. by pop. He was not very religious as he supported separation of the Church.

An issue that kept resurfacing during political meetings were the idea of Representation by Population. This basicly means that political parties all have equal power. In 1841, the act of union said that both sides of Canada were to have an equal number of representatives.

Political Deadlock kicks into action! ↓

John A. Macdonald was the first elected leader to legislature at a very young age. He was a Tory supporter who favoured many different companies. For e.g. The building of railways. He was elected in 1854. The Liberal-conservative party was created in 1856.

As a result of the Deadlock, the governement in Canada was overthrown easily. No party could put their policies into action because of this. George Brown got married and became more calm. He led his party out of the Deadlock and became less of an enemy. Brown suggested a commitee to help in the making of Canada's constitution. Brown, Macdonald and Cartier joined forces and the Political Dealock was Broken.
