In 1863 the vast transcontinental area comprising Canada today was made up of 5 diverse and widely separated areas of British territory: the present-day 4 Atlantic Provinces, the predominantly French-speaking valley of the St Lawrence (Lower Canada or Canada East), the Loyalist Upper St Lawrence-Lake Ontario-Niagara Peninsula region (Upper Canada or Canada West), the isolated Red River Settlement 1,000 miles to the west in the fur-trading empire of the Hudson’s Bay Company, and even more remote from the Canadas—the mainland province of British Colombia and Vancouver Island westward across the Rocky Mountains. The 1864 Conferences at Charlottetown (1 Sept.) and at Quebec (10–29 Oct.), which resolved to weld the then 3–25m. British North Americans into ‘one Dominion under the name of Canada’, were still to be held.
