Near Horton Landing in Kings County, Nova Scotia — The Atlantic Provinces (North America)
Democracy and the New England Planters/La démocratie et les Planters de la Nouvelle-Angleterre
To entice the Planters to settle in Nova Scotia, the British colonial administration introduced an elected legislature in 1758, a form of representative government they had long known in New England. In the decades after their settlement in Nova Scotia, the Planters and their descendants continued to press for many educational and democratic reforms, adding greatly to the success of these institutions in the province.
