You’ve been studying the social change that occurred in BNA between 18150-1850; this social change will bring with it political and economic change too.  Those already living in BNA, as well as new arrivals, had grievances they wanted addressed.  What were they?  How were they similar and different in Upper Canada and Lower Canada?
