Pork Packers, Reciprocity, And Laurier'S Defeat In The 1911 Canadian General Election
AbstractThe 1911 Canada United States Reciprocity Agreement had a central role in the campaigns of the Liberal and Conservative parties in the 1911 Canadian General Election. Consequently, Laurier s defeat in 1911 has been interpreted as Canada s rejection of reciprocity and her commitment to tariff protection. This analysis shows that reciprocity bolstered support for Laurier in 1911. In the absence of opposition from pork packers, particularly in Quebec, Laurier would have retained his majority mandate. Thus, Canada was not committing to a path of protectionism after 1911.
