Transcript of The Quebec act was a civic law that was made in 174


The Quebec act was a civic law that was made in 1774
ABOUT THE QUBEC ACT
The civic law was made because the Catholic people couldn't be a citizen because of the british. The Catholic people didn't have any freedom, so the law was made. This law was made by government of Quebec in a governor and council and preserved the French civic code.
Why My Topic Is Important
It is important to learn about the Quebec act cause if they didn't make the civic law about the Catholics having some freedom and that they can be a citizen. If they didn't have this law, now the Catholics wouldn't have any freedom today. I know this rule still exists, because there are so many Catholics living in Canada today. if it would not be passed it would have been proved biggest draw back in Canada's multicultural policies(Multiculturalism — A fundamental characteristic of the Canadian heritage and identity) , and the equality rights.(Freedom of conscience and religion)
THE EFFECTS ON THE THE PROVINCE OF QUEBCE
The effect on the Quebec was on the territory, religion, structure of government, and land use. It effects the territory cause I think the boundaries might have spread to the other territory such as southern Ontario, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin and parts of Minnesota. In the religion the were to kinds of catholic protestent and the Roman catholic. The protestent people already had freedom of having there culture. So they were bossy to the Roman catholic. The governor of Quebec will be appointed by queen Elizabeth. The legislative assembly was chosen by people. The seigneurs used the land to farm to make stuff to eat and also live there.
HOW MY TOPIC IS RELATED TO CANADIAN
The Quebec act is related to Canadian history because it made a change in life, cause as I said the Catholics didn't have any freedom, so if they didn't have that law it would be effecting on us today.
HOW DID MY TOPIC IMPACT TO PRESENT DAY LIFE IN CANADA AND IN THE WORLD
My topic impacts to Canada cause as i said if they didn't have that law it will effect on today. It will impact today because if the Catholic people didn't have freedom they wouldn't be living in Canada any more, and move to another place.
Conclusion
So basically the Quebec act is a civic act that was made in 1774, because the Roman Catholic didn't have any freedom. This civic law has pros and cons. It is good because finally the Roman Catholic got to practice their religion, and laid foundation for American revolution but on the other hand for colonists it was not beneficial. The Quebec act was effectively replaced by the Constitutional act of 1791, which divided Quebec into 2 new provinces, upper and lower Canada. so in the present day life the constitutional act is not valuable but it was the biggest turning point in the Quebec's history in 1774.

THE EFFECTS ON THE THIRTEENTH COLONY
The American colonists couldn't tolerate the rules of the Quebec act, so that caused the American revolution. Thirteenth colony was really important because it angered the rebels which mainly proved the foundation for the way American revolution.
