Constitutional Debate: Challenging the Fulton-Favreau Agreement

In its first hundred years, geography was Canada's most obvious tie that binds. On almost all other issues, there was disagreement. Politicians debated problems of leadership, division of responsibilities, colonialism, autonomy, taxation, and more. CBC covered the constitutional debate from 1944 to 1964 as Canada struggled to make sense of its past and came closer than ever to finally bringing the Constitution home.
