Storyboard Text

  • 2 men from the council are talking about the recent offer to join the confederation.
  • At The Red River Colony
  • We should try to bring up the offer to join the confederation at the next council meeting.
  • Yes, I think we should bring this up at the council meeting next time. 
  • In The Red River Council Meeting
  • All in favour to join confederation
  • Yes, we want to join.
  • At Sir John A. MacDonald's Office
  • Sir, the Red River finally joined the Confederation
  • Good, Good, make sure the Act has that we can build the railway west.
  • We the Metis have decided that we want to have an elected government, rights, and land. Also the Canadiens want a contry that respects the commitments they made in the confederation.
  • The offer to join the confederation has come to them many times and now they are thinking about bringing it up at a council meeting.
  • In Front Of The Conference Hall
  • The First Nations community want recognition to the rights to our land.
  • We the English-speaking Canadians in Ontario want the freedom to move west and establish farms.
  • Here the council of 20 English and 20 French decide to become apart of the Confederation.
  • In The Conference Room
  • The Canadian government passed this act in 1870. 
  • So, this document here shows the compromises we made and who have a stake in this Act.
  • One of Sir John A. MacDonald's men tell him about the Red River joining the Confederation.
  • What The Compromises Were
  • Acknowledge First Nations peoples' rights to the land.
  • The Compromises
  • Here people from different backgrounds from the Red River are shouting what they want in the act.
  • Yes, these are good.
  • Here representatives from the Red River (the men with their backs turned) and the representative from the Canadian government agreed on the Red River becoming apart of the confederation. This act was a compromise.
  • We the Red River or Manitoba are now apart of the confederation. 
  • Even though all these compromises were made the Act did not specify any particular tracts of land for the Metis, did no suggest a process of negotiating with the First Nations, it did not give Manitoba control over public lands, and it made Manitoba small.
