PART III
THE STRUGGLE IN THE COLONY: THE FUNDAMENTAL ISSUES

'Your Memorialists . . . cannot suppose that the acquisition of the Canadas in the first instance and the subsequent struggle for their preservation at so great an expense of Blood and Treasure of the Empire should have been made for the sole purpose of securing to the scanty population of the country the enjoyment of their Rights and Properties. . . . Your Lordship's Memorialists take a more enlarged, and they trust a more correct view of the Subject, and conceive that as the country was acquired and preserved at the expense of the Empire it should be considered as the inheritance of the Children of the Empire generally, and as affording Asylum to all such of his Majesty's subjects as may from choice or necessity leave the shores of their native country to settle in this distant Land without renouncing their allegiance to or Connexion with the Empire.'

Memorial of the Merchant Members of the Committee of Trade, Quebec, addressed to the Secretary of State for the Colonies in 1832.
