Canada and Austria. Shows Political and Cultural Similarities and Contrasts between Two Essentially Non-Connected Countries
Over the period of three years, from 1864 to 1867, the debate over Confederation in Canada was a heated, often violent one. In 1865, out of four elections, only one was won by pro-confederationists. The polls continued to fluctuate until the legislative assemblies of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and the united Canadas voted for Confederation. Next, the British government had to approve the plan and the seventy-two resolutions approved in the Quebec Conference. Despite the objection of one Parliament member, talking on behalf of some 30, 000 Nova Scotians, the bill, titled the British North America Act, swiftly passed. Canada had achieved Confederation.
In 1866, Prussia won a decisive victory over Austria in the 7 Weeks' War. For this, Austria had to relinquish Venetia and a number of German teritorries to Prussia. Prussia then went on to unify all German states into the German Empire. In 1867, Austria retaliated by modifying its constitutional framework as to give Hungary equal partnership. This came to be called the Dual Monarchy of Austria-Hungary.
