Title
The Development of a Garrison Mentality Among the English in Lower Canada 1792-1811
Abstract
The author explains the beginning of the creation of an English Quebec mentalité with the establishment of two solitudes in Quebec. According to the author, English-speaking Lower Canadians at the turn of the nineteenth century were under the (probably mistaken) assumption that given the chance, their French Canadian neighbours would join with Napoleonic France, and its United States ally, to rid British North America of the English. The actions and pronouncements of both French and American agents in the United States, of such men as David McLane (executed in Quebec City for treason in 1791), and of the actions of the French Canadian populace during the Militia and Road riots, created within the colony's English-speaking community a psychological barrier which the author has labeled "a garrison mentality."
