GOVERNMENT CONSEQUENCE: benefited from dispersal of Metis In 1860 there was an arrival of new immigrants to Red River Valley. The Canadian government greatly benefited from this. However as a result of this, the Méetis way of life became threatened. Much had to be adapted to. Later in 1868 Canadian surveyors started putting the Red River Valley into township grids. This was a major concern for the Meétis, since they didn’t have any legal claims to their land. This raised tension between the Méetis and the Canadian government. In September 1869, Anti-French man, William McDougall was appointed as Lieutenant Governor of North West Territories, which offended the Méetis peoples greatly. The Meétis didn’t want him in power, and so they made an enemy of the man. On October 16th, they formed the National Committee of Meétis to protect their interest. The Méetis finally had spokespeople. They Canadian government saw this as a challenge of authority. When McDougall decided he would travel to Fort Gary on November second of 1868, without permission of the Méetis, he was turned away. The same day, the Méetis captured the fort. The Canadian government officially loosing possession of it. In December of the same year, Louis Riel established a provisional government, giving Méetis a bigger political voice. The Méetis also created a bill of rights. This disrupted many of the Canadian governments plans, and they were forced to recognize the Meétis requests. On march 4th of 1870, Thomas Scott was executed. This caused a huge uproar in Ontario, and the Méetis leader, Louis Riel was forced to go into exile. In may of 1870, when the Manitoba act was passed, the Meétis demands were officially met. However when Canada bought Rupert’s Land from the HBC later on in July, It forced most Méetis into the western area to preserve any privileges they had.
