Election of Wilfred Laurier & the Liberal Party 1914 1905 1908
Continuous Journey regulation 1903 Regina 1912 First Calgary Stampede 400,870 immigrants come to Canada 1913 Fast growing Marquis wheat developed by government plant breeders 1907 Edmonton becomes incorporated as a city. Edmonton had applied to the legislature in Regina for incorporation as a city (Alberta did not become a province until 1905) Its charter was approved on October 8, 1904 and officially proclaimed on November 7, 1904.
Creation of two new provinces:
Alberta ( LEFT ) and Saskatchewan ( RIGHT ) 1904
Out of seven prime ministers, Laurier was the first francophone. He was in power as prime minister from eighteen-ninety-six to nineteen-eleven. Laurier, as well as the rest of the liberal party, won the support of voters on the promise to protect the french language and roman catholic rights. Because there was a lot of tension between the English and the french, he had to be careful what he said about sensitive subjects such as religion and language. Despite the challenges, Laurier effectively dealt with things through compromise. Canada was accepting mass waves of immigrants during this time in history. Despite all of the regulations made by the government to try and control the numbers of people entering, the immigrant population grew larger and larger. In 1913 the amount of immigrants in Canada was at its highest. In fact, it is still the highest amount of immigrants ever received by Canada to this day. The record remains unchanged. The continuous journey regulation was an immigration act which was to prohibit immigrants from entering Canada by a continuous journey from the country of origin, using the tickets of which they purchased in that country. A fee of 200$ would also have to be payed in order for any immigrant to enter. The act was put into effect on April 10th of 1908. It kept ships from traveling directly to Canada from places such as India, and kept them from selling boarding tickets. BIBLIOGRAPHY

Marquis wheat was created and developed by Dr. William Saunders. This type of wheat was very beneficial to the prairie farmers, it was ready to harvest in a short amount of time. Because of this potential problems, such as rusting were easily avoided. The demand for Marquis Wheat escalated quickly, often outweighing supply. The Alberta Act, effective September 1, 1905, was the act of the Parliament of Canada that created the province of Alberta. The act is similar in nature to The Saskatchewan Act, which established the province of Saskatchewan at the same time. Both acts are part of the Constitution of Canada. Like the Saskatchewan Act, the Alberta Act was controversial because it allowed the Government of Canada to maintain control of all of Alberta's natural resources and public lands. Alberta did not win control of these resources until the passage of the Natural Resources Acts in 1930. Regina was first established in 1882, and Incorporated as a city in 1903, after the population reached 3,000. It was given its name by the duchess of Argyll when she passed through the area. It means queen. It was originally called Pile of Bones. There are several other names it could have gone by, including Assiniboia, Leopold, and Wascana. The event lasted six days and over 100,000 people attended, despite economic depression, and It generated about 120,000$ in revenue. The stampede was funded by "The Big Four". Also known as Pat Burns, George Lane, A.J. MacLean, and A.E. Cross. Despite the event being a huge success, it didnt actually become hosted annually for a long time. WW1 was the result of the assassination of the Archduke, Franz Ferdinand of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, by Serbian nationalists. Because of this, Austro-Hungary declared war on Serbia, and many countries were later dragged into the war to support endangered allies. For example: Germany supported Austro-Hungary while Russia supported Serbia. Germany therefore declared war on Russia on August 1, 1914 and on their ally, France, on August 3, 1914. On August 4, 1914, German troops were sent into Belgium, defying the neutrality that Belgium was promised. Great Britain declared war against Germany that same day. 1907 Supremist Riots The Chinese and Japanese were subjected to much criticism during their time in Canada in the 19th century. A supremacist movement of whites in Vancouver marched through the streets, demanding for there to be a "White Canada". This hatred for the Asian peoples turned into violence. Angry mobs struck out against Chinatown as well as Japantown, vandalizing buildings and everything else in sight. The Punjabi Sikhs were targets as well. They were driven out of the lumber business as a result. Edmonton
