A. J. Casson
Group of Seven

I am publishing a page entitled Canadiana 1. It should be revised taking into account a group called Canada First and a figure: William McDougall.  McDougall and his party were pushed back to North Dakota by Métis led by Louis Riel, in 1869, when they attempted to enter the Red River Colony. They wanted to build a White and Protestant Canada West and spread hatred as a means to achieve their goal. French Canadians were not wanted west of the province of Québec.
