No, they did not want to join Confederation. However, John Hamilton Gray, of PEI, was in favour.

PEI didn't join the confederation because they didnt have enough money to create a railroad.


it could be used as a base of attack on Canada by another country.


They didn't want to join because the Canadian Government wanted a big cut of the natural resources of both provinces...


First, PEI is a harbour city, its location was essential. if PEI's economy increase, maybe the United Province of Canada's economy will increase. second, the landlord was British's. the resisdent in there didn't have their own land. therefore, it was important for PEI to join confederation.


PEI did not enter Confederation with the other Canadian provinces in 1867 (Canada East and Canada West, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia) mainly because it was scared of not being represented fairly. The local government on the island was afraid (due to the very popular rep. by pop. system) that it would have no say if it were part of Canada as a whole. PEI did not join confederation until July 1st, 1873. Also, one of the reasons that PEI joined confederation is that PEI was owned mostley by British landlords witch means that settlers couldn't own their land. To get PEI to join confederation The United Province of Canada promised that they would buy the land off of the British. that is why PEI joined confederation. Also, P.E.I didn't want to join Confederation at first because P.E.I is an island, and the railroads connecting Canada didn't really matter to them, what they needed was a railroad connecting places in P.E.I, but that was mentioned in the Seventy-Two Resolutions. It was only suggested and promised in 1866, but by then it was too late.

Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island Most commonly known as the Birthplace of Confederation. In 1864, representatives from the British North America and the Province of Canada met to discuss the confederation of Canada. Ironically, PEI was the only one of the maritime provinces that opposed confederation and did join until 1873.


Well, originally, New Brunswick wanted to join with Nova Scotia and PEI in a Maritime Union, but when John A. McDonald and George Brown got themselves in invited to the meetings, they persuaded Nova Scotia and New Brunswick to join Confederation. PEI did NOT join at this time because they felt no need.


Many great Canadians wanted Confederation. For Canada West (Ontario) George Brown and John .A. Mcdonald led them to Confederation. For Canada East (Quebec) George Cartier led them. Nova Scotia was led by Charles Tupper. New Brunswick was led by Leonard Tilley. They were the 1st 4 provinces to join confederation. PEI and Newfoundland did not want to join. Newfoundland was the last to join in 1949.


Pei was against confederation....


Prince Edward Island joined Confederation on July 1, 1873.


The answer is PEI at 1867. They take the PEI .


PEI and Newfoundland ... i think


Newforundland and Prince Edward Island rejected the Seventy-two resolutions because...


in the olden days they wanted it.



yes John Hamilton Gray of PEI is in favour of confederation


I don't believe PEI did, as it was part of Canada, and not the USA. PEI joined confederation as the 8th province. Previously the people had refused to join due to fears of unequal representation, as well as a clear lack of political and economic advantage, since most of their trade was with the USA. They finally agreed in order to abolish absentee landlordism, as well as the debt that the province had accumulated, which would be shouldered by the Canadian Government.


Prince Edward Island (PEI) joined Confederation on July 1, 1873, thereby becoming the seventh province.


When my husband and I travel over the Confederation Bridge it takes us about 12 minutes from PEI to NS.


PEI didn't join Confederation in 1867 because, at first, they were upset that Charlottetown was not chosen to be the capital of Canada. They thought that it should, since the Charlottetown Conference was there. Another reason was because they had such a small population, which made them think they would be swamped in the union. Since they had such a small population, they did NOT want representation by population. If the Confederation were to happen, then that would mean there would be representation by population. They would only have 6 members in the House of Commons, out of 194.


1. They were not concerned about the landholding system. Since they don't have much land compared to other colonies. 2. They have to pay tax to build the inter-colonial railway even though it doesn't reach them and the railway will be built far from PEI. 3. Felt that because of their small population, they would have a few representatives in Confederation compared to all the other colonies due to the smaller populating so they're needs would not be heard. 4. PEI's economy depends all in fisheries but if they join the confederation there will be more fishing ships around PEI and catch lots of fishes. 5. PEI is far from the US border so even if they attack they will have enough time to run and the PEI people think if that happens the Great Britain will send troops and help PEI.


At the time PEI had a number of options. 1. Jin Canada 2. Join the United States 3. Become an independent nation 4. Remain a British Colony To make a long story short, Canada offered PEI the better deal.


Probably the Confederation Bridge, as it reaches from New Brunswick to PEI.


Advantages -Railroad debt would be paid off. -Finance a buy-out of the last of the colonies absentee landlords to free the island of leasehold tenure. -Year round ferry Service (Bridge)
