in Prince Edward Island, and the Miramichi (Miramichi, New Brunswick) area, the North Shore (North Shore (New Brunswick)) and the upper Saint John River (Saint John River (New Brunswick)) valley of New Brunswick. Montreal and Toronto were well suited to benefit from the development of large-scale manufacturing and extensive railway systems in Quebec and Ontario, these being the goals of the Macdonald and Laurier governments. In the Maritimes the situation was very different. Today New Brunswick has several mid-sized centres in Saint John, Moncton, and Fredericton but no significant population centre. Nova Scotia has a growing metropolitan area surrounding Halifax (Halifax Regional Municipality), but a contracting population in industrial Cape Breton (Cape Breton County, Nova Scotia), and several smaller centres in Bridgewater (Bridgewater, Nova Scotia), Kentville (Kentville, Nova Scotia), Yarmouth (Yarmouth, Nova Scotia), and Pictou County (Pictou County, Nova Scotia). Prince Edward Island's only significant population centres are in Charlottetown and Summerside (Summerside, Prince Edward Island). During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, just the opposite was the case with little to no population concentration in major industrial centres as the predominantly rural resource-dependent Maritime economy continued on the same path as it had since European settlement on the region's shores. Despite the region's absence of economic growth on the same scale as other parts of the nation, the Maritimes has changed markedly throughout the 20th century, partly as a result of global and national economic trends, and partly as a result of government intervention. Each sub-region within the Maritimes has developed over time to exploit different resources and expertise. Saint John became a centre of the timber trade and shipbuilding and is currently a centre for oil refining and some manufacturing. The northern New Brunswick communities of Edmundston, Campbellton (Campbellton, New Brunswick), Dalhousie (Dalhousie, New Brunswick), Bathurst (Bathurst, New Brunswick), and Miramichi (Miramichi, New Brunswick) are focused on the pulp and paper industry and some mining activity. Moncton was a centre for railways and has changed its focus to becoming a multi-modal transportation centre with associated manufacturing and retail interests. The Halifax metropolitan area has come to dominate peninsular Nova Scotia as a retail and service centre, but that province's industries were spread out from the coal and steel industries of industrial Cape Breton (Cape Breton County, Nova Scotia) and Pictou (Pictou County, Nova Scotia) counties, the mixed farming of the North Shore and Annapolis Valley, and the fishing industry was primarily focused on the South Shore and Eastern Shore (Eastern Shore (Nova Scotia)). Prince Edward Island is largely dominated by farming, fishing, and tourism. * Kentucky Barbecued Chicken – barbecued chicken dipped in the original recipe * Wrapstar is a variant of the KFC Twister, consisting of chicken strips with salsa, cheese, salad, pepper mayonnaise and other ingredients, contained in a compressed tortilla.

He joined Edward Mortimer (Edward Mortimer (politician)) of Pictou (Pictou County, Nova Scotia) and William Cottnam Tonge of Halifax (City of Halifax) to form a "country party" that opposed powerful Halifax merchants allied with then Lieutenant Governor, Sir John Wentworth and the Privy Council (Privy Council of the United Kingdom), who favoured development of Halifax town at the expense of rural areas and were known at the time as the "court party". The country party took three of four Halifax County seats contested, including Fulton who finished third. (At the time all candidates campaigned county-wide with the top four finishers receiving the four available seats.)
