According to his government agreement he was entitled to 200 acres (80 ha) for every settler who received 50 acres (20 ha); in this way he gained an estate of 20,000 acres (8,000 ha) Talbot's administration was regarded as despotic He was infamous for registering settlers' names on the local settlement map in pencil and if displeased erasing their entry Talbot's abuse of power was a contributing factor in the Upper Canada Rebellion of 1837 Crown and Clergy reserves, This school is allowing children to skip class so that they can pray during school hours in a secular public school system all the while instilling the misconceived notion that menstruating girls are somehow unclean and should be pushed to the back of the figurative bus which in this case is represented by the cafeteria turned makeshift mosque Responding to criticism local school board trustee Gerri Gershon said "This is so sad. this is part of our religious accommodation policy" Culture of fear, Toronto City Council 2019 The first building of the Legislative Assembly of Upper Canada along with a number of other buildings was set ablaze in the days after the battle Between April 28 and 30 American troops carried out many acts of plunder Some of them set fire to the buildings of the Legislative Assembly and Government House home to the Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada it was alleged that the American troops had found a scalp there, though folklore had it that the "scalp" was actually the Speaker's wig the Parliamentary mace of Upper Canada was taken back to Washington and was only returned in 1934 as a goodwill gesture by President Franklin Roosevelt the Printing Office used for publishing official documents as well as newspapers was vandalized and the printing press was smashed Other Americans looted empty houses on the pretext that their absent owners were militia who had not given their parole as required by the articles of capitulation the homes of Canadians connected with the Natives including that of James Givins were also looted regardless of their owners' status.

Dearborn similarly emphatically denied giving orders for any buildings to be destroyed and deplored the worst of the atrocities in his letters but he was nonetheless unable or unwilling to rein in his soldiers Dearborn himself was embarrassed by the looting as it made a mockery of the terms of surrender he arranged His soldiers' disregard for the terms he arranged and local civil leaders' continued protest against them made Dearborn eager to leave York as soon as all the captured stores were transported Aftermath. .
