History
Description:
George-Etienne Cartier has traditionally been interpreted as primarily a federal politician, as Macdonald's ally in building a united Canada, and as a representative French Canadian. Brian Young downplays ethnic and national political factors and focuses on Cartier's function as spokesman for a specific social group, the Montreal bourgeoisie. The dominant politician in Quebec in the mid-1980s, Cartier directed the transformation of that society's fundamental landholding, legal, business, and educational institutions. Confederation was the political ingredient in the integration of Quebec into Canadian industrial society.
