We began today's class by discussing reasons different people thought B.C. should or shouldn't join Confederation. I was most impressed with the class's ability to puzzle out such a good variety of ideas. When we reviewed, we found that you came up with all of the main reasons: well done.
Next we read a summary on four of B.C.'s main resource industries. We practiced taking "marginal notes." Then we shared our ideas. We ended by looking at a Google Earth image of North Road and greater Vancouver.

I suggested you could read pp. 227-228 if you were finished early.
There is no homework.
