Constitutional Act in 1791 Two main political groups Family Compact (Tories) Businessmen and elite Lieutenant Governor Bond Head represented

their views Family Compact: A small group of powerful elites in the colony of upper Canada Defended tradition (The things that had always been done) and opposed change Believed power should be in the hands of a few capable people (themselves) Believed the Church of England should be powerful in

the colony Were loyal to Great Britain and the British government Had power to stop any laws passed by the legislative assembly Most Family Compact members were British immigrants who arrived before the 1800s The Reformers Reformers Led by

Robert Baldwin and William Lyon Mackenzie What did they oppose? Opposed the power of the Family Compact Wanted changes in government and society of Upper Canada Divided into moderate (led by Baldwin) and radical (led by Mackenzie) Gurley: sent a questionnaire to farmers; bring poor

people to farm in Canada Upper Canada Rebellion - 1838 When the Lower Canada rebellion began, Bond Head sends troops to seize Toronto Mackenzie later organizes Upper Canada revolt beginning at Montgomerys Tavern March down Yonge Street, Toronto Attack lasted about half hour

Rebel forces dispersed Results: Upper Canada Rebellion was very short and disorganized Bond Head was recalled in 1837 he was replaced with Sir George Arthur Lord Durham assigned to report grievances among the colonists and find a way to appease them

Lord Durhams report led to the Union of Upper and Lower Canada into the province of Canada in 1840 Change in Britains Colonial Policy Britain was starting to rethink its colonial policies in the 1840s. The purpose of having colonies was to provide cheap natural resources for the imperial power. However, the colonies were becoming very expensive ($ $$).

Therefore the British government decided to stop giving its colonies special trading protection and to trade freely with other nations. As a result, it affected Britains attitude towards its colonies. LORD DURHAM IS SENT OUT Lord Durhams observations Britain sends Earl of Durham Canadians want:

1. More control over government 2. All Provinces to unite > The British only wanted Quebec and Ontario to unite. All provinces together could create a successful rebellion. The Durham Report & the British Identity Durham refers to French Canadians as backward and illiterate. Argues that

irresponsible leaders easily manipulate them. Called the Canadiens devoid of history and literature They lacked in anything that elevates people Proposed assimilation of the French Thought this would eliminate racial antagonism that had paralyzed Lower Canada Thought it would give French Canadians more opportunity as English would be

language of business and social promotion The Durham Report Two Major Recommendations 1. The two colonies of Upper and Lower Canada should become one colony called the United Province of Canada. *This would give the English a majority

and help unite English speaking people The Durham Report 2. The new united colony should have responsible government. *All other local powers would be handled by the colonies.

*On matters involving only colony, the Governor would be advised only be his Executive Council with no input from the British Government. *The Executive Council members would be chosen by the leaders of the largest group in the Legislative Assembly rather than by the governor *Members of the Executive Council would keep their jobs only as long as they had the support of more than half the members of the Legislative Assembly, rather than for as long as the governor

chose to keep them on the council. Partner Activity (Groups of Two) Lord Durham had two recommendations. Who benefited or were happy because of the first recommendation? Why? Who benefited or was

happy because of the second recommendation? Why? RESULT: Act of Union 1840 English is the only official language. The Act of Union, 1841 The British government acted on Lord

Durhams recommendations. The Act of Union of 1841 joined Upper and Lower Canada together as the United Province of Canada. This united Upper and Lower Canada and is a first step towards

confederations. The Act of Union, 1841 Aim: To unite the into colonies of Canada into a single unit, and to give the Englishspeaking people control of the newly named colony. Important Points: The system of government was to be the same as in

the past. Established English as the official language It united both colonies under one government. Partner Activity (Groups of Two) How was the Act of Union of 1840 an attempt to resolve the issues raised by the 1837 and 1838 Rebellions in Lower and Upper Canada?

To what extent was the Act of Union of 1840 an attempt to provide the populations of Quebec and Ontario with increased control over their own affairs? Change in Britains Colonial Policy Britain was starting to rethink its colonial policies in the 1840s. The purpose of having colonies was to provide cheap natural resources for the imperial

power. However, the colonies were becoming very expensive ($$$). Therefore the British government decided to stop giving its colonies special trading protection and to trade freely with other nations. As a result, it affected Britains attitude towards its colonies. People Passport
