The People Speak Role Cards



Anti-Confederate Side
Your name for this activity is GRACE BAILEY. You oppose Confederation with Canada. You do NOT want Newfoundland to become Canada's tenth province. These are the arguments you use:

I've heard that we Newfoundlanders could get a much better deal from the Americans than the Canadians. We should be talking to the Americans about how we could work together. They could help us solve our money problems. We should be voting against Confederation. Who needs Canada?

The U.S. is a much more powerful country with 10 times as many people as Canada. We could make a special arrangement with the Americans, then sell them our fish products. We'd never have to worry about poverty again. We could work out some way to be tied to the U.S. and still remain loyal to Newfoundland.

We don't need the Canadians. We can get a better deal from Uncle Sam. That's why we must vote against Confederation.
