DOCUMENT CONTRIBUTING TO THE UPPER CANADA 1837 REBELLION

Folio 2pp. Ordered, by the House of Commons, to be printed, - [Parliamentary papers / House of Commons] ; no. 425 - 1836, London

"On the 28th of May Sir Francis dissolved the House, and immediately announced a general election to be held on the 20th of June. There is no doubt Sir Francis considered that the existence of Upper Canada as a part of the British Empire was at stake. In a dispatch to Lord Glenelg, sent from Toronto, written on the day of the dissolution of the Provincial Parliament, and advising the Colonial Secretary of the fact of dissolution, he said: "Of course, a most violent contest will take place, and I need hardly observe that it is one upon which our possession of the Canadas may almost be said to depend." quoted from 1900, The Lieutenant-Governors of Upper Canada and Ontario 1792-1899 Author: Read, David Full Title:
