Quebec Canada History
Quebec is the largest Canadian province in terms of land mass, but much of its territory is either uninhabited or uninhabitable. In Canadian history, Quebec's concerns have played a major role in shaping its culture, politics, and economy. As Canada's second most populous province, they continue to exert enormous influence on the country's culture, politics and economy. Quebec City, which stretches from Montreal on both sides of the St. Lawrence River, is located in the St. Lawrence Lowlands.
Originally it was a coastal settlement, and it was the route that the first European explorers used to enter North America. After initial attempts to settle in Quebec failed, Samuel de Champlain led an expedition to the St. Lawrence River to found Quebec City, with the aim of integrating the region and its resources into the French Empire. Eventually, Canada was divided and the Crown paid for the construction of New France, which increased the Canadian population.
Under the new law, the colony was divided into Upper Canada (later called Ontario) and Lower Canada. The other provinces that now make up the current map of Canada also gradually joined the Confederacy, culminating in Nunavut in 1999. After the dissolution of the United States of America in 1861 and the establishment of the Confederation in 1867, all former provinces and territories of New France were separated from their former province in Canada, with the exception of Quebec.
The old province of Canada was divided into Ontario and Quebec, which together with New Brunswick and Nova Scotia formed a new country called Dominion Canada. In 1763, the word "Quebec" meant only Quebec City, but the British founded a province in Quebec from the conquered territories of New France. East Canada was renamed Quebec and became part of the new province of Ontario (now Ontario - Quebec) in 1867.
Old Quebec became the British headquarters when they wrested control of the region from France during the Seven Years "War. In 1759, Quebec City was taken over by the British, who controlled it until 1760, when France regained control.
British law and British institutions, most of them loyalists, allowed them to live among them, so that the French-speaking population of Lower Canada could maintain their independence. The French part of New France was renamed Quebec Province by the British Royal Proclamation in the same year, and France ceded its North American territory to Britain in the Treaty of Paris in 1763. The law unites Dominion Canada with the United States of America, Canada, British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador. Canada's "United Province" of Canada, the law united the provinces of Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Labrador, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories into one "Dominion" Canada.
The idea that Quebec exists as a unique nation in North America is quite old, but the idea of taking things a step further and arguing that it should leave Canada altogether and start its own country is relatively new. Of course, the French do not like it, and the language is also official in the province of Quebec. Others claim that Quebec is not a nation, even though it is a French-speaking nation.
The first use of the official name of Canada was in 1791, when the province of Quebec was divided into the colonies of Upper and Lower Canada. The land downstream of the St. Lawrence River was considered part of what was to be known as Ontario, but it was only with the Constitutional Act passed by the British during the American Revolution that laws were enacted clarifying the right to free disposal of property against one's will. It was the first of a series of laws that reduced the boundary between the provinces by establishing a border between the provinces of Ontario and Quebec, and between Quebec and the United States of America, and it guaranteed, after the American Revolution, the rights to freedom of expression, religion, association, and trade. In the 18th century, the country upstream of Lake Ontario was also considered an independent province, while the countries downstream of it were known in Lower Canada.
The Constitutional Act of 1791 divided the province of Quebec into Upper Canada (later Ontario), which consisted mainly of Loyalist Protestants and spoke English - which spoke strong French - and Lower Canada - strong French. After the 1837-38 uprising, Quebec became part of the legislative union and merged with Upper Canada (Ontario) in 1841. The Constitutional Act divided the Canadian province into the provinces of Ontario and Quebec and the United States of America in the same way as it had been divided previously.
A major crisis in Quebec - relations with Canada came to a head when Quebec failed to sign the Constitution on the repatriation of refugees, initiated by Pierre Elliott Trudeau's government. Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau proclaimed the "death of separatism" for Quebec in a speech to the Canadian National Congress in Ottawa on July 1, 1968.
