The Accommodating Traditions
The Quebec Act (of 1774) was passed by the British parliament for governing and accommodating the French-speaking people of Quebec. The law made for accommodating the majority is one of the most important constitutional foundations of the country Canada. The Quebec Act created a better balance between the ground realities of the Quebec province and the principles practiced by British institutions. Under the act, the Catholics were provided all kinds of religious freedom and could also hold public office. Such practice and freedom were not available in Britain at that time. Following the Quebec Act, the region had the British criminal law system while still incorporating French civilian law principles.
