The real 'Father of Confederation' – Part 2 - Cumberland News Now - Cumberland News Now

Wednesday, July 05, 2017

Association of Canada and served as it’s first President.He constantly promoted the expansion of Canada as Minister of the Crown in the MacDonald administration. He assisted greatly in bringing Prince Edward Island into Confederation. He played a major role in the purchase of vast lands of the Hudson’s Bay Company, which made expansion westward possible leading eventually to the creation of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta.No one believed more in the necessity to build a railroad to the Pacific Coast than Charles Tupper. He worked tirelessly on that front. In 1881, he personally visited the colony of British Columbia. At that time there was only one house in what eventually became the city of Vancouver. Yet Tupper foresaw and predicted a great metropolis.That same year, while Canadian High Commissioner in London, as well as Minister of Railways and Canals of Canada, the dream of a national railroad was in trouble. The Canadian Pacific Railway Company had encountered unforeseen problems and expenses and faced imminent financial collapse. Tupper rushed back from London and persuaded his party and Parliament to give the company a loan of 30 million dollars for four years at four percent. This is an example of the reason Charles Tupper is referred to as “the man behind the National Policy”. Building that railway and connecting the country from coast to coast was indeed a major accomplishment. Tupper himself, in one of his speeches, observed that 4 million citizens of Canada accomplished what it took 40 million Americans to do - build a railway to the Pacific.Of course we must not forget to mention strong support for the building of a canal across the isthmus of Chignecto. When the prospect of a ship railway appeared and looked feasible, he supported that with all his might. It did not come to pass, and is a long story for another time, but not due to any lack of support from Charles Tupper. Charles Tupper was first knighted in 1868 and was named a Baronet of the United Kingdom in 1888 in recognition of his service to the Empire. After he retired from the Canadian Parliament, he and his wife moved to England where he lived until his death in 1915. He often visited Canada, however, because he had children and grandchildren from coast to coast.In England he continued his public service. He sat on the executive committee of the British Empire League,which also allowed him to promote closer economic ties and the welfare of Canada in general. As an emissary of the British Crown he travelled to various capital cities of Europe. For his service to the Empire he was made a knight Grand Cross of the Order of St. Michael and St. George ...
