    Hi Mangousteagile51!:)

    The interprovincial conference took place a few years after the creation of the British North America Act in 1867.

    20 years after the creation of the BNAA, Honoré Mercier, the Prime Minister of Quebec at the time, invited the other prime ministers at a meeting to discuss provincial autonomy. However, no representative of the federal government (Canadian government) was there. After some discussions, the prime ministers shared the same wish, which was the removal of the federal government's right of disallowance. At this conference, the signal sent to the federal government was clear: the provinces wanted more political autonomy.

    Hope that answers your question! :)
