Constitutional Act 1791
The Act was designed to harmonize the
conflicting interests of French and English by dividing Quebec into two
provinces,--Upper and Lower Canada,--thereby giving to each a larger
control of its own local affairs. It established in each province a
Legislative Council, appointed by the crown for life, and a Legislative
Assembly, elected by the people. See other constitutional acts: Quebec
Act, 1774; Union Act, 1840; British North America Act, 1867. =Index=:
