Title
Les réactions suscitées par L'Union dans Le Canadien et le Quebec Mercury (1840-1841)
Abstract
The author examines the reaction of two Quebec City newspapers to the 1840 Act of Union. This British Parliament legislation brought about the political union of the colonies of Lower Canada and Upper Canada into one colony, the Province of Canada. The aim of the merger was to assimilate French Canadians in Lower Canada into the more rapidly-expanding English-speaking Upper Canada. The author examines the stance of the anti-Union French-language newspaper Le Canadien and the pro-Union English-language newspaper The Quebec Mercury.
