Remember how royalists transformed Canada
Re: The Queen and I, by Linda Diebel, Front Page, May 23.

It may be recalled that after the British conquest of Canada in 1759, the colonial governor Sir Guy Carleton thought that Canada would always remain a French-speaking country. Europeans who migrate, he asserted, will never prefer the cold inhospitable winter of Canada to the more cheerful climate of His Majesty's southern provinces. So, barring tragedy shocking to think of, this country must, to the end of time, be peopled by the French-Canadian race.

This was not to be. Within a decade and a half, came a crowd of American royalists driven into exile by revolutionary upheavals in their own country. They were North America's first political refugees who fled to Canada to escape persecution in hands of so-called Patriots.

Influx of New England royalists, known as the United Empire Loyalists, signalled the transformation of Canada. It could no longer be contended that Canada would remain French to the end of time. A substantial and growing population of Anglo-American stock had been planted in Nova Scotia, Quebec and areas next to it what was to become Ontario, triggering a process in which the Francophones became a minority in the country founded by them.

As such, Canada is not  simply a former British colony like India or Australia, it is a country transformed by royalists, who left the land of brave, to live under the Crown. As a prominent Massachusetts Loyalist Jonathan Seewell, who became the chief justice of Quebec, wrote in the Boston Gazette : I must leave my dear Massachusetts, for I cannot forsake my King for the sake of convenience.

Few years ago, I visited Justice Seewell's stately mansion near the Quebec National Assembly. The house was padlocked with a plaque: This is the residence of Jonathan Seewell. Born in Massachusetts, he came to Canada in 1776 as a Loyalist and later became the Chief Justice of Quebec.

People like Justice Seewell and those who followed him had bequeathed the royalist legacy which we must cherish for the sake of Canada. Truly, the arrival of the United Empire Loyalists not only changed the course of Canadian history by prompting the British government to establish the provinces of New Brunswick and Ontario, it also gave them special characteristics which can be seen today. Perhaps the most striking of these is the motto on the Ontario coat of arms: Ut incept sic permanet fidelis, "As she began, so she remains, Loyal."
