The reason I am posting summat today has everything to do with this Monday. Louis Riel, our deeply religious and most forceful founder, got a holiday in his honour in Manitoba some time ago. It falls on the 19th of February this year. To this day, his life and death divide English and French Canada rather deeply. Manitoba has the second-largest French-speaking population in the country and has a very high concentration of Metis people. Louis Riel was their leader and voice. Well, there was Gabriel Dumont as well but sadly, I don't know all that much about him.
In honour of this great man, his important cause, and in honour of Manitobans everywhere, I post this excellent Youtube video courtesy of Histoica Canada. Oh, and this video has a graphic ending. You have been warned.
And Roy Dupuis is gorgeous. Have a good day.
