Slowly factories and other industrial buildings started to appear and the industrial age began. Capitalists were also trying to get their far share of involvement in the industrial business and from there slowly Canada started to become an industrially involved country. Intercolonial trade Intercolonial trade was something the provinces of Canada wanted to try for a while. But intercolonial trade was limited due to transportation issues. So Britain wouldn't be able to get the raw goods they needed and Newfoundland would be isolated because of the deadly waters surrounding them. Canada realized that the only way they could do an intercolonial trade was by establishing a link to other colonies so they decided to build a railroad to better assist in travel from the East and West Canada and to better receive exports and imports quicker and faster. Due to poverty and food shortages, many people migrated from Europe during the 1815-1850's This made British North America a very diverse place. Over 400,000 people settled in Canada, out of those 400,000 most were Britain settlers and including the other settlers who were already there that meant that the British out numbered the French which could cause problems in the future. It did cause problems because British people started spilling in to french land because of the lack of space.This caused arguments between the two people but were later resolved. The Fenians The Fenians were a group of Irish people that immigrated to Canada during the great migration. The Fenians/ Irish people felt mistreated during the famine in Canada and were mad. Canada was worried and invasions were a great risk so everything was monitored. The Fenians opposed Confederation greatly and the government as well. So they decided to kill Thomas D'arcy McGee. He was shot dead outside on the street, there was a big funeral held. http://www.intriguing-history.com/great-migration-of-canada/
