Charles Fisher

I have revised and expanded the Canadian Encyclopedia’s article on Charles Fisher, one of the Fathers of Canadian Confederation from the province of New Brunswick.¬†Fisher led the first responsible government in New Brunswick (1854‚Äď61) and was the leading constitutional lawyer of his day. He¬†attended the Qu√©bec and London¬†Confederation conferences and contributed to the drafting of the¬†British North America Act (1867) as New Brunswick‚Äôs attorney general.
