Of all the original Fathers of Confederation, Charles Tupper of Nova Scotia was its most tenacious champion in one of its most inhospitable environments. It is therefore fitting that he was also the last surviving original Father of Confederation, dying in 1915 at age 94. Tupper remained active in politics until his eighties, leading the federal Conservative Party in the elections of 1896 and 1900.
