Description:

The paper relates that pre-confederation British North America was a land of opportunity, but it was also a land of hardship and uncertainty. The paper explains that working hard was no guarantee of prosperity, for Canadian farmers and ranchers could be ruined by events beyond their control such as droughts, crop failures, and livestock disease, while factory workers in the Eastern cities had no job security and could find themselves homeless and starving if they were injured on the job and could not longer work.
