Premier’s statement on Louis Riel Day
Tuesday, November 16, 2021 7:00 AM
Premier John Horgan has issued the following statement to mark Louis Riel Day:
“Louis Riel was a champion of the Métis people and an ardent defender of marginalized rights. He is properly recognized as a founder of the Province of Manitoba and an essential contributor to Canadian Confederation.
“Today, we mark Louis Riel Day on the 136th anniversary of his death after a conviction of treason. He was hanged for having pressed his people’s legitimate grievances, making him today a national symbol of defiance in the face of oppression.
“Louis Riel will be remembered for his advocacy and dedication to justice for the Métis people.
“On Louis Riel Day, we acknowledge the work of an important historical figure who sought to have the Métis people accepted as equals in Canada. His vision of a diverse and inclusive Canada left a lasting impression.
“This day is an opportunity to celebrate Métis culture and reflect on the important contributions of the Métis people. Today, about 90,000 Métis live in British Columbia, representing a distinct Indigenous culture.”
