Nationalists from Quebec and Catholic militants from Mexico as soon as shared a typical reason, person who inspired diplomacy among their nations.

Sample text

With the establishment of the Orange Order in Canada in the 1830s – who staunchly fought Catholics in the country – and the new geopolitical reality imposed on French Canadians, priorities changed; radical anticlericalism was progressively abandoned. When the separation of Church and State was officialized in Mexico’s 1857 Constitution, French Canadian society had changed; reducing the social influence of the Catholic Church in Quebec seemed undesirable to most French-­ speakers at that time. The French Canadian nation survived London’s assimilationist scheme.

22 This realignment had profound consequences on the future of transnational relations in North America. With the establishment of the Orange Order in Canada in the 1830s – who staunchly fought Catholics in the country – and the new geopolitical reality imposed on French Canadians, priorities changed; radical anticlericalism was progressively abandoned. When the separation of Church and State was officialized in Mexico’s 1857 Constitution, French Canadian society had changed; reducing the social influence of the Catholic Church in Quebec seemed undesirable to most French-­ speakers at that time.

President from 1924 to 1928, Plutarco Elías Calles still dominated Mexico’s political life in July 1934 when he poured oil on the fire by calling for renewed cultural hostilities in his famous Grito de Guadalajara where he exposed why Mexico’s children had to be shielded from Catholic education. 59 It took over a decade to completely bring an end to the violence that ensued. I argue that the Québécois Jesuit Antorio Dragon’s books on Cristero Martyr Miguel Agustín Pro and his publications on the second wave of religious persecution also contributed to this process by drawing international attention to the situation in Mexico.
