The People Speak Role Cards



Pro-Confederate Side
Your name for this activity is CHESTER DUFF. You support Confederation. You WANT Newfoundland to become Canada's tenth province. These are the arguments you use:

I know why I favour Confederation. It's plain and simple-jobs. We've never had enough jobs in Newfoundland-never. Throughout our history we've always lacked enough jobs and that means we've always been short of money. Always. Most of us know what it's like not to be able to buy enough food for our families or decent clothing or proper shoes and boots. We all know of children who can't go to school because they have no shoes to wear. That is just not right. Confederation will put a stop to it.

If we join Canada, there'll be lots of jobs with good pay. Jobs for ferry workers, lighthousekeepers, postal workers, civil servants, even police officers in the R.C.M.P. Jobs and paycheques and food on the table and clothes on our backs. We must join Canada and put Newfoundlanders to work.
