"Excerpts from a broadside circulated at the beginning of the rebellion"

Up then, brave Canadians! Get ready your rifles, and make short work of it; a connection with England would involve us in all her wars, undertaken for her own advantage, never for ours; with governors from England, we will have bribery at elections, corruption, villainy and perpetual discord in every township, but Independence would give us the means of enjoying many blessings. Our enemies in Toronto are in terror and dismay - they know their wickedness and dread our vengeance [...] now's the day and the hour! Woe be to those who oppose us, for "In God is our trust."
