How We Cme About To Having Federation

461 words - 2 pages

Some trade unions had already started joining together with trade unions in other colonies, which would make it easier to have a commonwealth of Australia.Many people believed that the depression of the 1890's would not have happened if Australia had already been joined in federation and that it would not repeat itself if all the colonies were joined together. New South Wales was afraid of losing power over some of its land and railways, Queensland and Tasmania were afraid of being bossed around by the larger colonies, Western Australia said it was to far away from the other colonies to join in a union.There were arguments about where the capital city should be. Some colonies wanted taxes on trade (tariffs) and other colonies didn't.The colonial politicians were afraid that they would lose some of their power. The majority of the people didn't even care whether we had Federation or not. Federation was successful because of the support that we got from the English in writing our constitution, and the ideas of Sir Henry Parkes and others like him. The fact that the people of Australia didn't want to be completely ruled by the government of another country so far away, also none of the states or colonies were forced to join in a Constitution, this probably helped with why Federation was so successful. I think federation was a good thing for this country, because it made us a stronger and a more independent country.
