These 3 pairs were all a part of the same necklace I found at the secondhand store. It was....busy. But now they are each the star of their own piece and can shine all on their own. Which one is your favorite?
Chapter five: By 1885, the North-West Mounted Police had been established, and a railway to the West almost completed, so the impetus for the Canadian government to negotiate with Métis as it had in 1870 was no longer present.
After word was received that the federal government was sending 500 soldiers to Batoche in answer to the Métis petitions, on 18 March the Métis seized the parish church at Batoche, formed a provisional government — of which Riel was president — and demanded the surrender of the HBC post at Fort Carlton. The ensuing fighting lasted two months (North-West Resistance), and although the Métis won the first of two engagements, the Canadians ultimately overwhelmed Métis soldiers, and Riel surrendered himself to the Canadian militia.

Chapter four: On 12 February 1875, the federal government adopted a motion granting amnesty to Riel that was conditional to five years of banishment from "Her Majesty's Dominions."
Shortly after his exile, Riel suffered a nervous breakdown and his friends secretly admitted him to hospital, against his own wishes, at Longue Pointe in Montreal. He was later transferred to the mental asylum at Beauport, Quebec. In January 1878, Riel went to Keeseville, New York, before travelling to the American Midwest. Between 1879 and 1883, in Montana Territory, he reintegrated himself with the Métis, joined the Republican Party, became an American citizen, and married a Métis woman, Marguerite Monet, dit Bellehumeur.
In June 1884, Riel was asked by a group of Métis led by Gabriel Dumont to help them protect their legal rights in the Saskatchewan Valley.
Riel consented, so long as his family could join them and that he would be able to return to Montana once things were settled in Saskatchewan.
Among other grievances, the Métis were concerned by the fact that they did not hold permanent title to their land.
Riel drafted a petition (which was preceded by some 40 others sent before his arrival) outlining these grievances in December 1884. It was acknowledged by the federal government, which promised to appoint a commission to investigate and report on problems in the West. However, similar statements had been made before, and the Saskatchewan Métis, many of whom had left Manitoba after the Canadian government’s failure to live up to its agreements, were wary of such promises.

Attention to detail is so important when buying or selling Real Estate 🏡
When selling a home, first impressions are everything! So you want to make sure you hire an agent who will make sure to over see all the small details, to the marketing of the home and even down to the details of contract. •
When buying a home, you may fall in love with the appearance of it, but are you really looking at the fine details? •
So if you are looking to BUY or SELL your home this year, let’s chat over coffee and get you to where you need to go 🏡💛
