In the News (Fri 15 Mar 19)

There had grown up in the colony a little clique of officeholders, of whom Jonathan Sewell, the Loyalist Attorney General, and later Chief Justice, was the chief, full of racial and class prejudice, and in some cases greedy for personal gain.
Of the non-official English, some were strongly opposed to the pretensions of the "Chateau Clique"; but others, and especially the merchants, with their organ the Quebec "Mercury", were loud in their denunciations of the French who were unprogressive and who as landowners were incidentally trying to throw the burden of taxation chiefly on the traders.
The governing clique, as the older established body, had no doubt that they could bring the western section under their sway in case of union.

The Clique was also able to establish itself in the Legislative Council, leaving the Legislative Assembly, made up of a majority of French-Canadian representatives, with little or no power.

En 1822, la clique appuie le projet de réunir le Haut et le Bas-Canada.

The rebels call for independence from Britain and a more democratic form of government, which was then controlled by a small group of wealthy families, called the Family Compact in Ontario and the Chateau Clique in Quebec (both groups mostly British and Anglican).
An economic depression had increased poverty and unrest during the 1830s, and in Quebec, the rebels were also motivated by French nationalism (the conquest of Quebec had only happened 75 years before, still within the living memory of some of the grand parents).
But the dominant economic position of the rich Family Compact and Chateau Clique families was not changed.

Historians have long debated whether it was essentially a "racial" struggle, to use the term in vogue in the 19th Century to describe what we now call nationalist or linguistic.
While unquestionably, the record shows a wave of British brutality in the wake of the uprising - the burning of three villages and dozens of farms for starters - it is far from clear that it was a simple English versus French fight.
Indeed, the initial movement was enthusiastically enjoined by many English Quebecers whose rights were just as infringed by the Chateau Clique as their French-speaking neighbors.

 Rebellions in Canada from 1830 to 1890
In the 1830s, Upper and Lower Canada were controlled by the ruthless and greedy Family Compact and Chateau Clique.
Following the defeat of French forces by Britain, incoming British settlers and merchants to Lower Canada quickly disliked the efforts of the Chateau Clique, a powerful oligarchy that controlled Lower Canada politics, who hindered trade with Upper Canada and blocked the installation of a Legislative Council.
Reformers led by Louis Joseph Papineau won the support of the voters in the 1834 election, and demanded responsible government with a resolution passed by the Assembly in 1836.

It was these huge families, though, that ensured French-speakers would continue to dominate the province demographically - a political move termed the revanche du berceau (revenge of the cradle).
The creation of Lower and Upper Canada in 1791 emphasized the inequalities between anglophones and francophones, as the French-speaking majority in Lower Canada were ruled by the so-called Château Clique - an assembly of francophone priests and seigneurs who had to answer to a British governor and council appointed in London.
Rebellions against this hierarchy by the French Patriotes in 1837 led to an investigation by Lord Durham who concluded that English and French relations were akin to "two nations warring within the bosom of a single state".

 Papineau, Louis-Joseph
Papineau travelled to England in 1823 in his campaign to defeat the Union Bill of 1822, which had been introduced to circumvent his control of the Assembly.
The union was rejected and this victory reinforced his desire to reform Lower Canada's political institutions, particularly the council, which was dominated by the CHATEAU CLIQUE.
Towards 1830 Papineau stepped up his virulent attacks on the nonelective legislative council and declared himself a republican.

 Snapshot, Canada: Ontario
The Americans gained control of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, however, and during the Battle of York occupied the Town of York (later named Toronto) in 1813.
After the War of 1812, many settlers from the British Isles immigrated to Upper Canada, and began to chafe against the aristocratic Family Compact that governed the region, much as the Château Clique ruled Lower Canada.
Accordingly, rebellion in favour of responsible government rose in both regions; Louis-Joseph Papineau led the Patriotes Rebellion in Lower Canada, and William Lyon Mackenzie led the Upper Canada Rebellion.

 Sociology 250
Before 1960, there were very few sociological analyses of Canada which examine the capitalist class in Canada or considered that class conflict was an important feature of Canadian social and economic development.
  While the Family Compact and Chateau Clique were part of colonial history, it was commonly held that Canada in the twentieth century was a parliamentary democracy with a reasonably competitive capitalist economy.
Farmers and members of social reform movements of the early to mid twentieth century often argued that there were powerful bankers and financial interests or wealthy industrialists.

Indeed, local oligarchies made up of merchants, bankers, and other business people combined with colonial office-holders and clerical leaders to dominate the political and social life as well as the local economies of each of the colonies.
Even if the best known of such groupings were the "Family Compact" of Upper Canada or the "Chateau Clique" of Quebec -- Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland had there own equivalents.
Often these functions were complementary, for example, both local farmers and local merchants and traders stood to benefit from improvements which reduced transportation costs on the St. Lawrence - Great Lakes waterway.

The focus of their concerns was the ensuing rebellions against British Crown rule to the North, led first by Louis-Joseph Papineau in Montréal, Lower Canada (LC), and shortly thereafter by William Lyon Mackenzie in Toronto, Upper Canada (UC).
Nearly two decades of fruitless reform struggle against the intransigent rule of the Family Compact in UC and the Chateau Clique in LC had made it a relatively foregone conclusion that the reformers would be pushed to the barricades.
As political conflict between Canadian reformers and the British ruling cliques heated up between 1835 and 1837, Americans cocked their ears northward ever more intent and eager to spill additional ink reporting developments.
