    Hello ShyButterfly6490! :)

    The Patriots of Lower Canada had written 92 resolutions to denounce the many injustices they were experiencing. They sent these resolutions to London with the goal of obtaining some changes in the colony.

    In 1835, London responded to these demands in the negative. All the demands of the Patriot Party were rejected.

    Following this rejection, the patriots organized popular assemblies in front of hundreds of people where they took the opportunity to denounce the Russell Resolutions. It was also during these assemblies that Louis-Joseph Papineau encouraged the population to boycott British products. This boycott deprived the government of the colony and the metropolis of having revenue from taxes and customs.

    The negative response to the 92 resolutions also led to the Patriots’ rebellion three years later. 

    I invite you to consult our fact sheet on the subject if you need more details.
