Damn the Canadian Government, once again had our opinions been ignored. The Indian Act is so confusing, i don't even know what my status anymore!
Yeah! And with the new railway being built, more settlers are coming. Our voice will be suppressed even more.
Okay. I'll just not tell the next person who's finishing the job...
Alright... We want legal title to our lands and the lots around the river surveyed.
Sigh... we need a petition, including our concerns for land rights and farming. This could also help the new Canadian and European settlers!
Hmmm... After doing some calculations... THATS 71 MILLION DOLLARS! We can't let this opportunity go away, who cares about the Métis anyways. Also, for building the railroad, we're gonna slash the Indian Affairs department budget.
So, Mr.JAM there are around 6.4 million hectares of land available in the Northwest Territories, but some are occupied by the Métis..
Louis, we need you to lead us! The Canadian government are going to further deprive our rights!
Of course, I, Louis Riel, who is chosen by god to lead the Métis will come to your aid. Together, we will draft a Métis Bill of rights containing our grievances as well as those who are non-Métis.
