Rouges From 1854-1864 there were half a dozen elections and 10 different governments came and went. The main parties of Canada East and West. The main parties of Canada East were the Bleus led by George Etienne Cartier and the Rouges led by Antoine Aimé Dorion. In Canada West there were the Tories (Conservatives) led by John A. MacDonald and the Grits(Liberals) led by George Brown. Canada west got 42 representatives who spoke English, and Canada East got 42 representatives who spoke French. The political deadlock occurred because governments in Canada were very short-lived. None of the 10 governments survived long enough to give the colony of Canada enough political stability. How was the Political Deadlock resolved? In 1863 George Brown agreed to work with John A. MacDonald and George-Étienne Cartier to make changes to Canada' s political state which lead to the great coalition. How Did this play a role in confederation?

MacDonald and George-Étienne Cartier, which would mean the Great Coalition would have never happened and Canada would not be the same. Internal or External?
