Title
Authoritarianism, Constitutionalism and the Special Council of Lower Canada, 1838-1841
Abstract
Following the Rebellion of 1837 in Lower Canada, British authorities suspended the colony’s constitution. From April 1838 to February 1841, legislative power vested in an appointed Special Council. The author argues that the changes imposed by this Council were largely those envisioned by a political movement known as the Montreal Constitutional Association.
