8 EARLY TORONTO NEWSPAPER REPORTS ON THE RIEL REBELLION
North-West Rebellion, also called North-West Resistance, Second Riel Rebellion, or Northwest Uprising, violent insurgency in 1885 fought between the Canadian government and the Métis and their aboriginal allies, in regions of Canada later known as Saskatchewan and Alberta. The North-West Rebellion was triggered by rising concern and insecurity among the Métis about their land rights and survival following an influx of white settlers and a decline in bison - a major food source for the Métis and indigenous peoples in west-central Canada. The North West Rebellion lasted less than three months in the spring of 1885. But the prairie uprising had an enduring effect on a nation. While the North-West Rebellion was ongoing, the American and British press took note of the actions of both the Métis and the Canadian Government.
This is the perspective of from two Toronto newspapers in 1885. Seven "The Globe" and one "The Toronto Daily Mail" newspapers, with each issue reporting on the North-West (Louis Riel) rebellion , 8 page, 15-3/4 x 23 inches, with each issue reporting on the NW rebellion related material with lots of local Toronto impact as well. Fair to good condition.
