    Correct Answer
    C. A few weeks
    Explanation

The brevity of the rebellion suggests that it may have been swiftly suppressed or resolved, resulting in a relatively short period of unrest and resistance.

    Rate this question:

  • 4.

    • A.

      The Parti Canadien were losing the rebellion.

    • B.

      The Radicals were taking over Lower Canada.

    • C.

      The government wasn't listening to his requests.

    • D.

      He was threatened with arrest.

    Correct Answer
    D. He was threatened with arrest.
    Explanation
    Papineau fled because he was threatened with arrest. This suggests that he was facing imminent danger and had to escape in order to avoid being captured and potentially imprisoned. The other options, such as the Parti Canadien losing the rebellion, the Radicals taking over Lower Canada, and the government not listening to his requests, may have contributed to the overall political climate and tensions that led to his arrest being a possibility. However, the specific reason for his flight was the direct threat of arrest.

      Clergy and Crown Reserves

    • D.

      Government wanted to get rid of the colonies.

    Correct Answer
    D. Government wanted to get rid of the colonies.
    Explanation
    The other three options provided in the question were reasons for rebellion, while the government wanting to get rid of the colonies was not. Bad roads, French culture being endangered, and clergy and crown reserves were all factors that contributed to the rebellion. However, the government's desire to eliminate the colonies did not play a role in sparking the rebellion.

      Leader of the Parti Canadiens.

    • C.

      Part of the British Government.

    Correct Answer
    B. Leader of the Parti Canadiens.
    Explanation
    Louis Papineau was a prominent figure in Canadian history who played a significant role in the political landscape of Quebec. He was a leader of the Parti Canadiens, also known as the Patriote Party, which advocated for democratic reforms and greater autonomy for French Canadians. Papineau was a key figure in the Lower Canada Rebellion of 1837-1838, where he led a movement against the British colonial government. His leadership and influence within the Parti Canadiens make him the correct answer as the leader of the party.

    Rate this question:

      Responsible Government.

    • B.

      Patriotes were possibly charged with Treason.

    • C.

      Wolfred Nelson fled Canada.

    • D.

      The British Government left Canada.

    Correct Answer
    B. Patriotes were possibly charged with Treason.
    Explanation
    One of the outcomes of the Rebellions was that the Patriotes were possibly charged with Treason. This suggests that the rebellions led to a crackdown by the British government, with the Patriotes facing potential legal consequences for their actions. It implies that the rebellions were considered a threat to the established order, leading to a response aimed at suppressing and punishing those involved.

    Rate this question:

      Responsible Government.

    Correct Answer
    D. Responsible Government.
    Explanation

This means that they desired a system where the government is accountable to the people and their elected representatives, rather than being controlled by a distant authority. This would allow for greater participation in decision-making and the ability to shape their own laws and policies.
