Notes: Thomas examines the events and evidence pertaining to the trial of Louis Riel. He concludes that the legal proceedings were biased against Riel, since the court ignored evidence that he was insane. Riel's trial was a political trial "designed to assuage the paranoic fears and passions of Ontario voters".
