Call #: Shortt F1071 .S25 v.26 no.1 1973
Author: Koester, C.B.
Title: The Agitation for Parliamentary Representation of the North-West Territories, 1870-1887
Notes: Koester argues that the western case for representation had been fully developed by the white settlers and presented to the government prior to 1885. Even Riel and the Métis supported the demand for representation. However, Macdonald's National Policy did not include constitutional rights for the inhabitants of the North West. It was the Resistance of 1885 that eventually forced the government to grant parliamentary representation to the North West.
