Some thoughts about Louis Riel

- Are any of Riel's actions legally justified? What about morally so? Do you think he received a fair trial?

- When William McDougall forges the Queen's signature, is that not a treasonable offense?

- The parts about MacDonald deliberately instigating a rebellion were troubling to me. I wanted to know if they those sections of the book were factual. Do you think Brown has a bias, or is he fair?

- How do you know if you are really a prophet or not?

Here's the full transcript of Riel's final statement at his trial.

Come discuss this book Saturday September 19th at the Main Library in Conference Rm 3 at 11am. Feel free to bring food and drink.
