    In my opinion, From looking at it from the rebels point of view, they felt justified in taking up arms against the official government. In both the Upper and Lower Rebellions of 1837, rebel forces felt that the official governments were not being responsive to their needs. Economic challenges were plaguing both regions and the pleas for responsible government were not being heard. Farmers in Lower Canada were experiencing challenging times that were not being acknowledged by those in the position of power, while rebels in Upper Canada felt that the political system of patronage was denying opportunities for many.
