The people who lived in the BNA colonies were getting tired of being ruled by the British and decided to form their own country.
The country they created was named Canada.
I choose Canada's Confederation because it was the official start of Canada. This is also when Canada's official history start. Without this beginning we wouldn't be here right now.
in 1869 there was an enormous territory up for sale and the name was Rupert’s land. The British wanted to sell this land because of some fur trade problems. Canada wanted this land because they saw it as an extension of its new nation which included Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Ontario and Quebec.
This is important to add to my timeline because this land is now apart of Canada, and Canada would not be the same without it. I also choose to add this into my timeline because Rupert's land is a big part of Canada.
The Supreme Court of Canada is the court of last resort (or the highest court) in Canada. The Court is composed of 9 judges: the Chief Justice and eight judges.
I choose this event because the Supreme court is important to the government and the democracy. This is connected to the present time because we still use the Supreme court for important law making.
On March 10, 1876, Mr. Bell spoke the first words into the telephone to his assistant, Thomas Watson: "Mr. Watson, come here, I want to see you." Alexander Graham Bell made the first telephone in Brantford, Ontario, Canada.
I choose this event because it is significant to our history. This connects to our present time because without the telephone we would not be able to communicate with each other from anywhere in the world. It has also evolved from a telephone into a cellphone, which is more convenient.
The Canadian pacific railway is a railway company in Canada. The company was founded in 1881 and was meant to link the populated places of Canada together.
I choose this to be my last event in the timeline because the railway connects the most populated places in Canada to make it easier to transportation. This is connected to the present because the Canadian Pacific Railway is still in use after 132 years.
