Best Answer

The people in Canada's accepted the confederation because it would change them from five unimportant colonies into a great and powerful nation, it would remove the barriers to trade among the colonies and provide a market of four million people, Canada would become the third largest sea-going nation in the world after britain and the united states, it would encourage people to come from other contries to settle in Canada, it would provide other markets for their goods, and in case of war all the colonies would stand strong together.
