Transcript: Simon Posada Sara Echeverri Group 10a 7. The National Policy was a Canadian economic program introduced by John A. Macdonald's Conservative Party in 1876 and put into action in 1879. It called for high tariffs on imported manufactured items to protect the manufacturing industry. 6.He used the tensions in the Northwest. He argued that with a railway, it will be faster to transport troops. 4.The pacific scandal occured because Macdonald wanted to be re-elected, but he didn’t have enough money for his campaign. Macdonald asked Hugh Allan if he could help him with the necessary money. In return, Macdonald promised a guaranteed railway contract, if he won the elections. The conservatives won the elections of 1872, and in 1873 documents with Macdonald’s promises were made public. Mackenzie, who won the elections, thought the railway was an unnecessary waste of money, stopping the construction of the railway. Macdonald perceived the occupation of the vast plains of the West as vital national interest. The building of the CPR would assure the sovereignty of Canada over the territory and eastern industry would have access to the resources and the customers of the West. 2. CPR stands for Canadian Pacific Railway Some pictures The immigration policy was designed to maximize the investment in such an expensive railway and to provide customers to eastern industry. The high tariffs would ensure the development of a Canadian industry and assure a better standard of living and jobs for Canadians. 1. It was the dream of Jonh A. Macdonal, but also it was a condition of B.C to join confederation. 3. The CPR was formed by Sir Hugh Allan. The National Dream Project 5. William Van Horne was given almost complete control over the building of the CPR. More than 35.000 workers were employed; many of them came from china.
