His split with Lord Brougham was an important public event, but his permanent retirement from the cabinet in 1833 as a result of repeated disagreements with Lord Grey on matters relating to reform clearly marked the beginning of his isolation.
To be lenient while cognizant of the seriousness of the acts committed, Durham felt obliged to resort to a strategy which would only succeed if his agents could bring the principal prisoners around to admitting their guilt.

I used indeed then to think that Lord Durham had too strong a feeling against the French Canadians on account of their recent insurrection.
I looked on that insurrection as having been provoked by the long injustice, and invited by the deplorable imbecility of our colonial policy; and I thought that our real sympathies ought to be with a people whose ultimate purposes were aright, though by the misconduct of others they had been drawn into rebellion.
There was, however, one necessary consequence of great hurry in which Lord Durham was compelled to take his departure when once determined on, that I much regretted.
