SOme of the Pros and Cons of Canadian Confederation are : Canada would be United as one Country and would be given the name Canada. Not everyone agreed with the British North American act.

What were the cons of joining the confederation for sackatchewan?

Saskatchewan didn't really have much choice so pros out weigh cons. It was either become a province or stay part of the Northwest territories. There were those in Saskatchewan that did not want to be sold or transferred from HBC control to Canada and they did speak out, some openly rebelled. The military response from Canada made them an offer they could not refuse. A big negative would be that Saskatchewan has put more into Confederation than they have gotten back. Canada believes Saskatchewan owes them everything, after all Canada created, owns, Saskatchewan. The down side of that has been many federal policies directed at the Prairie Provinces meant to transfer Western wealth east. This has been possible in part due to the lack of equal and effective representation in Confederation, another negative. They could have stayed as part of the Northwest Territories but that would have meant even less representation and more exploitation.

What were the pros and cons for British Columbia in joining the Confederation?

The PROS of joining confederation were that British Columbia could run successfully after the death of Governor Seymour and the replacement by Anthony Musgrave, there would be A responsible Government, and that B.C could be connected to the east by a railway. Many viewed that confederation would help BC out of its economic depression at the time. CONS- Unfortunately Sir John A Macdonald had no idea how much the railway would cost or where to put the railway through the rocky Mountains. This stalled the construction of the promised railway and did in fact cost alot;therefore, the costs were poorly estimated and the government ran underbudget for the project. Senior officials lamented the demise of the colony's old political institutions, and the fact that the province would take orders from Ottawa

What were the pros and cons of Canadian Confederation for the western colonies?

The only pro would be not being taken over by the worlds largest and most prosperous superpower of the 20th century. The cons continue to be played out. The "Western Colonies" were not, other than British Columbia, like those on the East Coast. The West was purchased and acquired by Canada and as such most of the West are or were colonies of Canada. That status means that even when much of the land was given provincial status they never achieved equal status. Even today Western Canada is not given an equal role in Confederation and is expect to pay more into Confederation than it receives This is particularly the case for Alberta but all of Western Canada has been treated as less than an equal partner. The cons include being displaced by massive Canadian immigration, having their history written by Canada, and having their future being decided by people from thousands of miles away, by people from a different culture with a different view of their past and future. acquired
