The area was a former Indian trading center. By the 1860s it was peopled by a blend of Indian and French personas called Métis. They were French speaking and Catholic and resented the influx of English speaking Protestants from Ontario who had begun pouring into the area. The Metis declared that any attempt by Canada to assume authority would be contested, and they seized the fort in the area, Fort Garry. They arrested members of a pro-Canada faction opposed to them, and they executed one of pro-Canada faction for having threatened to kill the Metis leader Louis Riel. Canada sent a military expedition. Riel (in his mid-twenties) fled to the United States. Talks were conducted, followed by an act by Canada's parliament, the Manitoba Act of 1870, that paved the way for Manitoba's entry into the Canadian Confederation as its fifth province. The Métis were guaranteed title to the lands they already farmed, language rights and the right to denominational schools. On November 8, 1873, Winnipeg was incorporated as a city.
