Nicholas’s decisions in things such as the war and internal affairs were at the best poor. One of the main factors in the downfall of Nicholas 2nd was his lack of reform. Throughout the course of his reign he had many opportunities to implement improvements in areas such as the government, social welfare for the peasants and the working class. His attempts to improve things but still hold onto as much power as possible, led to him deceiving his people through the nobles holding onto power and his self-elected and so called democratic dumas. This was made possible by him controlling the majority of the dumas funding meaning he could deny a new law by limiting their financial strength.
The French and Indian War made the British council establish new laws. They passed laws like the proclamation of 1763 where the British closed off the frontier to the colonist (Doc A).

A MacDonald faced major challenges such as problems between the English and French, ongoing annexation threats from America, as well as large economic issues while holding his position as Prime Minister. Since the beginning, the thought of cultural nationalism seemed impossible due to the French and English relations. Obtaining the physically enormous Rupert’s Land for Canada was essential, but Louis Riel and his French Canadian Métis group reacted violently when their home joined confederation. Although Macdonald peacefully purchased the land from Britain (unlike the American West, acquired through military means), Riel wrote up demands for his colony. When these were denied, the Métis captured the expansionists and murdered one uncooperative member: Thomas Scott.
Canada’s Involvement in the Second Boer War Canada’s involvement in the second Boer War lacked the strong integrity that Canada had been building since confederation in 1867. This mistake cost Canada a set back in their independence from the British Empire. Imperialism became a large issue when Canada allowed Britain to make important decisions, regarding Canadian lives, for them.

We have been pushed around continuously, and as citizens of Lower Canada, our greatest direction to head is to rebel. Liberalism should be brought amongst us granting rights to responsible government. Our culture has been threatened by the governing oligarchy, and by the many preposterous English-speaking immigrants who are coming to the colony.

The government and his council only approved laws that benefitted themselves and vetoed the laws that weren’t beneficial, not solicitous about the citizens imperatives.
