Both were magistrates, but Dingman was also a Reformer who had made his political views known. Fortunately for him, he seems to have had enough influence with other magistrates to keep from being arrested, and to foul Allen in his efforts to take away his commission in the militia. Allen charged that Dingman, "has been considered a radical for several years past by the loyalists here" and that "he always refused to cheer our Governor Sir Francis Bond Head and stated that he was not worth cheering." In this time of conflict the loyalists took the position that those who were not 100 per cent with them were against them., but Dingman may have been like the editor fo the British Whig, who called himself a "disagreeable" because he disagreed with Mackensie and with Sir Francis Head." page 90 & 91, from "The Rebels of Hastings" by Betsy Dewar Boyce
