Riel, who led Metis rebellions in present-day Manitoba and Saskatchewan, is extremely important in Canadian history, but was repudiated by most Canadians (French-speakers were somewhat more sympathetic, though by no means unanimous) through WWII. Since then, more and more literature, art, and scholarship has treated Riel as a quintessentially embodiment the conflicts and contradictions of Canadian history and nationhood.

Carte-de-visite portrait of Louis Riel taken in Ottawa after his election as MP for Provencher, Manitoba, 1873. This portrait was sold by La Presse following the execution of Louis Riel on 16 November 1885. While studying for the priesthood, Riel met a young French Canadian woman, Marie-Julie Guernon, to whom he quietly became engaged. The committee invited both the English and French speaking people of Red River to send delegates to Upper Fort Garry to discuss the terms on which they would allow McDougall - and by extension Canadian authority - into the Northwest.

In this article, I argue that Louis Riel is a necessary invention for the production of Canadian sovereignty. I then bring Agamben's insights into an examination of the tensions between French and English Canada over Riel's execution in 1885. The argument builds on the work of Giorgio Agamben. Finally, I look at the contemporary exaltation of Riel, focusing on the two statues that have occupied the legislative grounds in Winnipeg, which, when considered in tandem, serve as a metaphor for the relationship between liberal and colonial dynamics in Canada political history.

The myth of Louis Riel - the hung French-speaking Metis leader of the Riel Rebellion - as a hero of the West, the Metis, Aboriginal peoples and French Canadians; and that of Tom Scott - the English-speaking patriot executed by Riel's firing squad - as a rude troublemaker who deserved what he got - is. not the whole story. Our myths are etched in black and white while historical realities have many colors and shades. Understanding the difference is crucial to understanding and dealing with today's concerns.
