Hastings County Historical Society Public Presentation: A Very Canadian Coup – The Rise and Demise of Prime Minister Mackenzie Bowell, 1894–1896

Maranatha Church Auditorium 100 College St. W, Belleville

Author Ted Glenn will discuss his book, A Very Canadian Coup. When Mackenzie Bowell became Canada’s fifth Prime Minister in December 1894, everyone — including Bowell — expected the job would involve nothing more than keeping the wheels on the Conservative wagon until a spring election. Plans for a quiet caretaker-ship were dashed in January 1895 when the courts ruled that the Manitoba government had violated Roman Catholics’ constitutional rights by abolishing the provincial separate school system back in 1890. Catholics in Quebec demanded that Bowell force Manitoba to restore the schools, while Ontario Protestants warned him to keep his hands off. Backed into a corner, Bowell tried three times to negotiate a compromise with Manitoba over the course of 1895, but to no avail. By January 1896, seven of Bowell’s cabinet ministers had had enough. Convinced Bowell had tarnished the Conservative brand, the caballers forced Bowell to resign and make way for a new leader who they believed could revive party fortunes in time for the coming election, the old Warhorse of Cumberland himself, Sir Charles Tupper. Date: Tuesday, October 18th from 7:30 pm to 9 p.m.   Location: Maranatha Church Auditorium
