Consider viewing Joseph Howe: The Tribune of Nova Scotia first and note the changes that occur once Tupper becomes premier.  What are some of the challenges to Confederation that are presented in this film? How accurate is this depiction? What arguments are presented in favour of Confederation? What benefit/disadvantage would this present for Maritime provinces such as Nova Scotia? Charles Tupper is named as one of the Fathers of Confederation. Research his contribution to ensuring Confederation occurred. Following Confederation, Tupper continues in politics. Research his contributions in Canada and abroad.
