Transcript of Sir Frederic Bowker Terrington Carter

Welcome To The Father Of Confederation
Sir Frederic Bowker Terrington Carter

Why did Carter want Confederation?
Carter believed that Confederation would become stable NF's economy and its political climate.
What Conferences did they participate in and what was their contribution?
At first, Carter was not a strong supporter of Confederation. It became a major issue in 1861 when the
Conservatives regained power from the Liberals. John A. Macdonald, invited Carter and Ambrose Shea
to the Quebec Conference where they discussed about Confederation and came up with the Quebec Resolutions. So they advocated the Resolutions all over Canada. When Carter returned to NF, he was met with opposition by an anti-union campaign led by Charles Fox Bennett. They thought that this union with the other colonies would cause NF to stabilize and change its political climate. His action still causes each province to control its own affair. His action doesn't slow down each province's unique culture but enhance the uniqueness of each province.
Which colony or province did they represent?
Carter represented New Newfoundland!
