Why was the government of Canada(1791)
not truly a representative government?

This system was not truly a representative one because a representative government is one in which representatives are elected by people to make laws on their behalf, and this wasn't done in this government. It never represented all of Canada. It was an oligarchy government. It was limited and the people couldn't vote anyone in those positions of power.

I kind of got stuck on this one...anything else that needs to be added?
