Title
La genèse et le développement des partis politiques au Bas-Canada (1791-1840)
Abstract
The author investigates the development of political parties and the origin of party loyalty in the Legislative Assembly in Lower-Canada between 1791 and 1840. She concludes that language was the most salient issue of division among the legislators in the first Parliaments, and that constitutional issues were the primary causes of conflict in the last two Parliaments. She found that there was no clear division between legislators based on their social status, the type of district in which they were elected, their occupation or their parliamentary experience. The author concludes that the legislators did not tend to organize along party lines; instead they voted according to their individual preferences.
