Canada had more power over themselves
Being French in Canada
Allowed to continue to govern themselves according to their own customs
Catholics were excluded from public positions
Important because of their contribution to agriculture, industry, commerce and the professions.
Loyalty was taken for granted by the british-speaking canadians
Not always understood/accepted
accent, traditions, values
Being British in Canada
"It was a real shocker..as if i was in a foreign country, and here I was thinking Canada, being a part of the British Empire and all that, that I would be received as a wonderful person"
Most of Canada were Aboriginal territory
The British wanted the land and the workers.
Initially: ignore, challenge or negotiate the settlers.
