[Probus.;]. The list of by-elections in the Province of Canada includes every by-election held in the Province of Canada from its creation in until Confederation in By-elections occurred whenever there was a vacancy in the Legislative Legislative Council was made an elective body in and by-elections occurred there as well.

Due to the fluid nature of party allegiances during. Quebec is the second-most populous province of Canada, after Ontario.

It is the only one to have a predominantly French-speaking population, with French as the sole provincial official inhabitants live in urban areas near the Saint Lawrence River between Montreal and Quebec City, the imately half of Quebec residents live in the Greater Montreal Area, including the Capital: Quebec City.

Quebec has played a special role in French history; the modern province occupies much of the land where French settlers founded the colony of Canada (New France) in the 17th and 18th centuries.

The population is predominantly French-speaking and Roman Catholic, with a large Anglophone minority, augmented in recent years by immigrants from Asia.

In particular, Quebec's somewhat strained relationship with the rest of Canada—the result of a still-active secession movement—may be a sensitive topic. Some Quebecois favour independence from Canada, while most Francophone communities outside Quebec, such as the Acadians in New Brunswick, are proud to be both Francophone and Canadian.

In Lower Canada, however, unlike elsewhere, the struggle among political parties was played out against a cultural backdrop: reformers promoted the interests of French-speaking Canadians, while conservatives advanced those of the English-speaking minority.

As a result, Lower Canada was a British colony quite unlike the others. A History of the Vote in Canada Chapter 2 From a Privilege to a Right – At Confederation, the British North America Act stated that control of the federal franchise would remain a provincial matter until Parliament decided otherwise.

The provinces were still developing more or less independently, each with its own character rooted in its traditions, demography and geography. John Litle, the patriarch of the Litle Family of Aylwin Quebec, Canada immigrated to Canada in and settled in what was then known as Lower Canada (Quebec).

He was a farmer and merchant running the first store and post office in the village. In the country then called Canada was divided by Act of the Imperial Parliament (31 Geo. III, c. 31) into Upper Canada (now Ontario) and Lower Canada (now Quebec), and the Act established a constitution for each, with a Legislature consisting of a Legislative Council and a Legislative Assembly.

; as given in Yves ROBY, Les Franco-Américains de la Nouvelle Angleterre,Sillery, Septentrion,p. 47 Table 2. Distribution of Franco-Americans* in New England, The Act of Union () essentially merged both Upper and Lower Canada into a single centralized governmental entity, appropriately named - the Province of Canada.

The British North America Act took effect on July 1,officially establishing the Dominion of Canada, initially with four provinces: Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario. The Act of Union established important changes in the electoral representation of Lower Canada.

Upper Canada and Lower Canada were each entitled to elect 42 representatives under the same legislature. Each electoral division was represented by one member, except for the cities of Montreal and Quebec City, which retained two representatives each.

The Province of Upper Canada (French: province du Haut-Canada) was a part of British Canada established in by the Kingdom of Great Britain, to govern the central third of the lands in British North America, formerly part of the Province of Quebec since Upper Canada included all of modern-day Southern Ontario and all those areas of Northern Ontario in the Pays d'en Haut which.

In Upper Canada, which was Ontario, and Lower Canada, which was Quebec, were brought together as the Province of Canada, with the seat of government at Montreal.

The arrangement was not a comfortable one, because Ontario felt it was under-represented and Quebec did not wish to be dominated by Ontario.

The earliest censuses in Canada date from the mid"s. Many of these censuses, however, don't list the names of each individual in the family, but just the name of the head of the household. The first Canada-wide census was in It included both Upper and Lower Canada (Ontario and Qu˜Obec).

The four elections between and are a particular nightmare of ambiguity, given how much chaos the party system was experiencing at the time. In deciding who to count as what, I have relied on the data in the book Canada Votes () by Howard A. Scarrow which offers well-researched suggestions for sorting ambiguous MPs in early.

About the time the Loyalists were settling in, the French Revolution came along and the next thing, in JanuaryBritain went to war with the new French Republic.

Wars need men, in the army, the navy, and in making all the things the army and navy need. When there were jobs at home, there was no great need to emigrate to a wilderness that had to be cleared of trees before you could farm.

BOOK - Peter Robinson's Settlers & By Carol Bennett. In and groups of people from south Ireland were brought to Upper Canada under the leadership of the Hon. Peter Robinson, MPP. They settled in the District of Bathurst in the Ottawa Valley and in the Newcastle District in the Peterborough area.

Elections north of the border are different in tone, pace, substance and character from the raucous, coarse, gritty, permanent campaign Americans are conducting. It is because some men, in all other respects, of great merit - the liberals of Upper Canada, with whom those of Lower Canada must act in concert, reduced to despair by the injustice of the Tory faction, and of the family compact, were deceived, and demanded the intervention of the English Parliament in favor of this fatal Union; imagining that.

This was duly accomplished at the general elections for members to serve in the first House of Assembly. These elections began on March 8,and were concluded early in the following month.

In the Lower Province they were marked by a violence and acrimony unprecedented at any election which had ever taken place in the colony.
