Friends of Louis Riel call on the Canadian government to pass a Parliamentary Bill revoking the conviction of Louis Riel of all criminal charges and exonerate Louis Riel.
Why is this important?
Louis Riel remains branded a "traitor to Canada." Although recognized as a "Canadian hero" whose "ideals of inclusiveness and equality - are now the very same values on which we base our country's identity" ( P.M. Justin Trudeau, Feb. 15, 2016 ) Louis Riel was tried in a "trumped-up" colonial court and brutally executed. This cannot rest as Canadian history or justice and must be rectified for true reconciliation to be realized. Let us heal the "great divide" and exonerate Louis Riel
