    It was not Mackenzie and his followers who moved to the attack, however, but rather the Tories, led by Governor Bond Head. Dummitt argues that William Lyon Mackenzie book would not and could not have written his book 20 years earlier and emphasizes the rebukes and dismal sales of Harry Ferns and Bernard Ostry's book, The Age of Mackenzie King, which was highly critical of the late prime minister and his alleged insatiable ambition. On her 74th birthday, King smothered her with 74 kisses, historian Christopher Dummitt reports. Mackenzie was the driving force in compiling the "Seventh Report of the Committee on Grievances, " issued inwhich detailed the reform case in the province.

During the campaign, Mackenzie published a "Black List" in the Colonial Advocate, a series of attacks on his opponents, which led the Canadian Freeman and the Tories to dub him "William Liar Mackenzie". He also wrote a book during this period, Sketches of Canada and the United States, designed to acquaint the British public with his grievances. Mackenzie supported some characteristically British institutions, notably the British Empireprimogeniture and the clergy reservesbut he also praised American institutions in the paper. Mackenzie, after being nominated by Franklin Jackesdefeated John Rolph in the vote and thereby became the first Mayor of Toronto. This was an error on the part of the ruling clique, known as the Family Compact, for it publicized Mackenzie, his paper, and his reformist views more fully than he himself had been able to accomplish.

When the Roman Catholic bishop Alexander Macdonell organized a rally in York to demonstrate Catholic support for the Tories, Mackenzie and his supporters disrupted the meeting. This incident contributed to Mackenzie's decaying faith in Great Britain. The year was a time of great political turmoil in Upper Canada.
