Title
Some Determinants of Voting Blocs in the Assembly of Lower Canada, 1820-1837
Abstract
A study of the social backgrounds of the members of the fourteen sessions of the Legislative Assembly leading up to the Rebellion of 1837 to determine bloc voting patterns on the crucial debates of that era. Although a series of determinants were influential to varying degrees at different times, the only strong determinant operating consistently throughout the period, according to the author, was a combination of ethnic and religious affiliations.
