The People Speak Role Cards



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

We Newfoundlanders can't afford NOT to choose Canada. We've always had a low standard of living. Our country's bills keep piling up to run our schools and hospitals and ports. We haven't the money to pay our bills, so our government always has to borrow. Things will be different with Confederation.

Canada will take over our debt, and take over paying for ferries, railways, and ports and such. We can't afford to pay our bills, but Canada can and Canada will.

Whoever says Canada is a foreign land of strangers should remember this-we have lots of ties with Canada. Why, in our family, there are as many aunts and uncles and cousins living in Toronto as there are here in Newfoundland. They had to move away to Toronto to find work and a better life than our island could provide. Confederation will change all that. There will be more jobs for Newfoundlanders, and a higher standard of living. Of course I choose Canada.
