Economy and Society
I. ‘The Great Unraveling’
The ‘fiery fifties’:
Following series of progressive irravelments.
Supporters are making a case for responsible government
Characterized by co-operation between Canada east and west
50’s characterized not by compromise, but of tension, animosity, and rivalry
collapse of co-operation.
East (Fontaine and Bawldwin) is critizes by a group knows as the rouges. They
derive, energy and inspiration from revolutionary movements in France. They are
always in a minority to propel into a government position.
West – threat to the east.
‘Clear grites’; group opposed to the east, led by George Brown (businessmen and
politician). They wanted more change in constitutional development and evolution.
‘rep. by pop.’: demanded representation by population. Canadian census of 1851 revealed

Present especially in the West
7 characteristics (3 major): Biblicism (a belief that the Bible is true – the written
word of God. It is not an epic narrative. Can include fundamentalism: what is said
in that text is precisely true and accurate), conversion (the idea that they undergo
