  Rebellions of 1837
There was growing discontent with the network of officials, erroneously described as the FAMILY COMPACT, who dominated the administration of the government and controlled the distribution of patronage throughout the province.
But during 1837 political unrest grew more serious because of a crisis in the international economy which spread to Upper Canada and uneven crop yields which led to food shortages.
Moreover, the rebellion and the raids played into the hands of the ultra-Tory faction in Upper Canada who were placed in a temporary ascendancy.

  Rebellions of 1837 and 1838 - From Colony to Country - Library and Archives Canada
The rebellion in Upper Canada is often associated with William Lyon Mackenzie (1795-1861), a reformer, newspaper editor, mayor of Toronto and fiery orator who, for many years, waged a war of words on the ruling oligarchy in the province.
In 1837, having failed in his attempt to achieve reform by political means, Mackenzie rallied both moderates and radicals in an ill-conceived plan to overthrow the existing government.
As a consequence, twelve rebels in Lower Canada were hanged for their part in the rebellion, and when all the trials were completed in the fall of 1839, approximately 130 rebels were transported to the penal colony in Tasmania.
