"BY A REFORMER OF 1836"
THE MINISTERIAL CRISIS: MR. D. B. Viger, and His Position: Being a review of the Hon. Mr. Viger's Pamphlet
Kingston, ON, 1844, 1st printing, . An original stitched printed pamphlet. 8vo, pp. 20. "Printed and sold at the Chronicle & Gazette Office, Kingston, 1844". Pages age-toned but otherwise unmarked.
¶ Overall, in very good condition, and a scarce item. Denis-Benjamin Viger (1774-1861) was a 19th-century politician, lawyer, businessman, and Patriote movement member from Lower Canada. He was born in Montreal and his father had represented the Montreal East district in the Legislative Assembly of Lower Canada from 1796 to 1800. In 1808, Viger married, and he was elected to the Legislative Assembly for Montreal East in 1808 and 1810, then in Leinster in 1810 and 1814 and in Kent in 1816, 1820, 1824, and 1827. Prominent in the Patriote movement and denounced as the owner of seditious newspapers, Viger was imprisoned in 1838 when martial law was imposed in Lower Canada. He refused to post bail to protest the enforcement of martial law and demanded a regular trial. Consequently, he was not released until May 1840. In 1841, he was elected to the Legislative Assembly of the United Canadas. From December 12, 1843 to June 17, 1846 he was one of the joint premiers of the Province of Canada. Viger died in Montreal in 1861. When this pamphlet was published, Viger was one of the Canada's "joint" Prime Ministers. There was at that time considerable discontent amongst French Canadians that he had abandoned their interests by acquiescing in the authority of the Governor-General appointed by the British. He sought to defend his actions in pamphlet form, which prompted this "anonymous" response, actually written by Francis Hincks (1807-1885).
