How has this event furthered Canadian Sovereignty?
This event has furthered Canada's independence by helping it achieve its first step to a completely independent nation. With confederation, it let go of a great deal of ropes holding it to Britain. Canada could have her own government, though everything had to go through Britain first, Canada could still make the beginnings of her own decisions.
