In response to (A hero in the eyes of the beholder) I guess it is who you talk to when it comes to Riel and if you are Metis or not. Being Metis myself and being raised within the culture we were always taught that Riel was our hero, one of Canada's Fathers of Confederation having set up the provisional government in Manitoba. But going to school, he was a traitor to Canada and John A. McDonald was the hero.
