The Maratime Rights Movement (Nova Scotia, Canada)

Uploaded by badgercat on Mar 25, 2002

The Maritime Rights Movement is usually seen as part of the economic decline of post world war period in the Maritimes. The Maritimes were going through hard times, the depression was said to have started in the Maritimes ten years before the rest of Canada did in 1929. The Movement had the Maritimes economic and social needs as it’s priorities. The Maritimes views were often contradictory to those of West and Central parts of Canada.

The odd thing is that the overall population of the Nation at this time is growing, while the population of the Maritimes is actually falling. What this translates into is the fact that the population in the rest of Canada was actually growing faster then the population of the Maritimes was dropping. This problem creates a problem in it’s self, as can be seen in the impact felt in both politics and the economy .
