JACQUES CARTIER (1491-1557)
- Was sent to find the same two things as Jacques Cartier (a shipping route to let French traders import silk and other products. To also find precious gems to make France rich).
- He explored the Coastal regions of North America.
- He was a "cartographer" (map maker) that made detailed maps of the Atlantic Coast, the waterways of the St. Lawrence River and its tributaries.

hoping for religious tolerance
- Slack slaves and escaped black slaves.
- A lot of the Loyalists deserted their entire way of life just to move to British North America.

THE REBELLIONS OF 1837-1838
A lot of the citizens of Lower and Upper Canada were not happy in the early 1830s.
- The governments were undemocratic.
- In that time it was very hard for farmers because the wheat prices were declined so they had to change the type of crops they grew.
- The situation was made even worse in Lower Canada because of the dissatisfaction with the seigneurial system.
- The governments of Upper and Lower Canada did agree with each other so it made it more difficult to make improvements.
- By late 1837, Mackenzie gave up on doing a peaceful reform.
- Mackenzie's supporters began to gather at Montgomery's Tavern. His troops were a mix farmers, workers, and unemployed people. They could have attacked but Mackenzie hesitated to go for three days. That gave Lieutenant-Governor Bond Head more time to organize his troops.
- They met Lieutenant-Governor Bond Head's troops and in less than a few minutes all of Mackenzie's supporters were down.
