Québec a Nation History (Part 18)

The Parti Patriote was a Republican political party in what is now Québec, that was founded at the beginning of the 19th century. Most of it's members were Québecers and Irish immigrants, included François Blanchet, Pierre-Stanislas Bédard, Jean-Thomas Taschereau, Louis Bourdages, Denis-Benjamin Viger, Daniel Tracey, Edmund Bailey O'Callaghan and Louis-Joseph Papineau.

Under the leadership of Pierre-Stanislas Bédard, the party campaigned for ministerial responsibility and a responsible government in which the members of the Legislative Council of Quebec would be appointed by the Legislative Assembly's majority party. The council was chosen by an appointed British governor, whom the Parti Patriote considered to be severely corrupted and hostile to the interests of the majority of the population.

During a partial election in Montreal on May 21, 1832 British soldiers open fire on the crowd of civilians and kill three supporters of the Parti Patriote.

The Lower Canada Rebellion, La rébellion du Bas-Canada, is the name given to the armed conflict between the rebels of Lower Canada (now Québec) and the British colonial power of that province.
