  • (East of Canada: The Story of Newfoundland series, Part 3) When Canada was created in 1867, it was expected that Newfoundland would soon join the Confederation. Instead, the poor cousin went her own way, not without casting some longing glances at her rich neighbor. Until the 1940s, the word "confederate" in Newfoundland was synonymous with "traitor"; yet Canada prevailed. Looks at the ties that bound Canada and Newfoundland together and at the problems, many of Canada's own making, that kept them apart.

  • After joining Canada in 1949, Newfoundland plunged into a scheme of rapid industrialization. The Premier, J. R. Smallwood, seemed to be happiest when he was overseas enticing a tycoon to come to the Province or at home opening up some factory or hydro station. The results of this rush to industrial prosperity brought some benefits but a price was paid. And tycoons and politicians didn't pay it. (Closed-Captioned) (Donated by W. A.
