      About this Charlottetown tour

      Some call it "the birthplace of Canada," and for good reason: It's where modern Canada came into being.

      In 1864, representatives from England's Maritime colonies – Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island – gathered at Province House to talk about forming a union. The Brits encouraged these talks, looking for a way to make the colonies less financially dependent on the Crown. The Province of Canada (modern-day Ontario and Quebec) finagled an invite and ended up dominating discussions, becoming the squeaky wheel in a conference that wound up getting their province the most grease. They succeeded in getting the whole country named Canada and its capital located in Ontario.

      It's only fitting that Canada's birthplace is also one of its most charming cities. You'll see this in the architecture – the Victorian houses and Gothic Revival cathedral – the lovely parks and gardens, and the friendly, welcoming townsfolk.

      Today Province House is home to the Legislative Assembly of Prince Edward Island, one of several places on this tour going back to Canada's founding. It's equally fitting that a nation known for friendliness and courtesy began there.

       Real clowns vs. the political kind

      You'd think a gathering of important politicos discussing the forging of a new nation would be the big game in town. But while the politicians were congregating at Province House, the rest of Charlottetown was at a visiting circus. Even the wharfs were deserted, with no workers on hand to greet the ship carrying the delegates.
