The Canadian Party and the Execution of Thomas Scott
We are a group of Red River settlers called the Canadian Party! And we are here to overthrow you, provisional government
Great, we literally were just established and a group of people are already trying to overthrow us
We were only concerned with the rights and welfare of the new English Protestant settlers.
Welcome to Fort Garry
You, Canadian Party, should have never tried to overthrow our provisional government
Hey vazey mutton shunter, quit being such a meater you jollocks. You are a total gibface and a werid old flapdoodle.
Great just what Riel needs, more stress and pressure and another person complaining about this prisoner.
We were stuck with this one?
Why out of all prisoners in this place...
A group of Red River settlers calling themselves the Canadian Party, attempted to overthrow the provisional government soon after it was established.The Canadian Party was concerned with the rights and welfare of the new English Protestant settlers.
The Métis captured about 50 members of the Canadian Party and imprisoned them in Fort Garry.
To be continued...
Great we litterally
Thomas Scott was one of the men captured in a second uprising in February 1870. He was a difficult prisoner, often insulting his Métis guards.
Pressured by angry Métis, Louis Riel held a court to try Scott for contempt, or disobedience, of the provisional government. Scott was found guilty and executed in March 1870.
We the jury find Thomas Scoot GUILTY for contempt and disobedience of the provisional government and sentence him to Execution by firing squad
