SOUVENIR COPY OF THIS MENU CARD IN  ENVELOPE READY FOR MAILING  MAY BE HAD ON APPLICATION   TO   DINING  CAR  STEWARD The Riel Rebellion
CANADA'S hold upon the   great North-West was threatened
twice  by  Louis   Riel  and  his   Met s  followers.    On both
occasions troops from Eastern Canada made epic marches
into the West.
The first outbreak occurred in November, 1869, when Riel
seized Fort Garry at Winnipeg and proclaimed a provisional
government. Troops under Colonel Wolseley started west
from Toronto on May 21, 1870. They proceeded by rail to
Collingwood, thence by the steamers "Algoma" and "Chicora"
to Thunder Bay, on the north shore of Lake Superior. The
march over the tortuous Dawson route began in the middle of
July. On August 24, 95 days after leaving Toronto, Colonel
Wolseley led his way - worn soldiers into Fort Garry. Riel
fled as the column approached the fort, and the trouble was over.
The Canadian Pacific began to build the first transcontinental
railway on May 2, 1881. Four years later, on March 26, 1885,
Riel's Metis raided stores at Batoche and Duck Lake. Mounted
Police and volunteers who went to the rescue from Fort
Carlton were repulsed, leaving 9 dead. Riel at once sent
messengers with news of the victory to all the Indian tribes.
Inflamed by him, Stoneys and Crees raided Battleford, and another band wiped out the settlement at Frog Lake and burned Fort
Pitt. Delay in sending troops to quell the insurrection might have
swiftly brought on a general uprising of the 25,000 or more Western
Indians, who were growing restless. Months, perhaps years, of
savage warfare would have followed. A seemingly impossible
task confronted the Government. The United States would
not allow an expedition to pass through its territory:
ice still blocked the Great Lakes. The Canadian Pacific line
around the north shore of Lake Superior was under construction,
but there were many gaps in it. The energetic Van Horne then
stepped forward with his startling offer to put troops into Qu'Appelle, 320 miles west of Winnipeg, in 11 days.
Head of steel was at Missanabie. When troops arrived at that
point they came under Van Home's absolute authority. He would
have it no other way. They were piled into sleighs filled with
straw to keep them warm and driven over the snow to Magpie,
42 miles away. At every stop Van Horne had piping-hot coffee
and food for the soldiers. From Magpie they were carried in
open ballast-cars to Port Munro, a distance of 108 miles. They
then marched 17 miles across the open, wind-swept ice on Lake
Superior to McKellar's Harbor, where the rails began again.
They piled once more into ballast-cars for the 17 miles to Jackfish. Sleighs carried them 33 miles forward to Winston Harbor,
and the ubiquitous ballast-cars carried them still farther to Fire
Hill. They marched from Fire Hill, through snow in places up
to their waists, to Nipigon, where trains were waiting on tracks
that stretched without a break as far as Calgary. Qu'Appelle
was reached in 8 days. Order was completely restored after
four engagements, and ever since there has been peace in the
North-West.
This was the first of a long list of patriotic services rendered by
the Canadian Pacific to the Dominion of Canada.
