Today we did a summary of what we've learned about B.C. I focused on the early history with the European navigators, the financial and political effects of the gold rush, and the reasons for and against BC joining Confederation. I also took a side track and discussed the idea of balanced budgets and how they affect governments' fiscal planning and our own personal planning. I even discussed debt, loans and credit because all of these were economic factors at play in BC in the early 1870s when John A. Macdonald came knocking at our door.
Next, we did some quick fact finding about the Cariboo gold rush. Please post a comment that summarizes 10 bullet point facts: please remember to include your first name (only) so you can get credit for your work.
For homework, I asked that you read pp 220-230 in your text (but only the sections written on a white page - ignore the material written on coloured text boxes).
