Article diffusé depuis le 20 mai 2000
 




Main rebel leader in the western part of Upper Canada. He was born in 1794 in Connecticut and received his license to practise medicine in 1819. He moved to Upper Canada and practised medicine in the Talbot Settlement for 6 years. He relocated to Bishopsgate near Burford in 1828. In 1838 he was elected to represent London District and was reelected in 1834 and 1836. In 1836 he worked to improve education in Upper Canada and went to England as an emissary to express the concerns of the Reformers. He entered politics in 1830 and was considered a moderate Reformer. In 1834, however, he turned to the more radical wing of the reform movement. Duncombe escaped to the United States after the defeat of Mackenzie.
