Thomas Scott’s execution highlights a time of severe conflict between settlers and the Métis in Canadian history.
His execution led to Riel’s exile, and to Riel’s own execution for treason in 1885. Little is known of Thomas Scotts’ early years. Scott emigrated to Ontario in 1863 along with his step-brothers, Joseph Bath and Christian Aiello. On his arrival at Red River, he worked as a labourer on the “Dawson road” project, connecting the Red River and Lake Superior. He took part in a strike in 1869, for which he was fired and convicted of aggravated assault. Scott had persecuted many metis, or “Half Breeds” in Winnipeg, and his first town, Ottawa, with a mysterious man named Gnez Noel. In February 1870, Scott, alongside several volunteers amassed a rescue party outside John Christian Schultz’s house in Kildonan that sought to free any remaining prisoners at Fort Garry.
Summarily, the Métis released the prisoners and the rescue party was dispersed. Scott and several volunteers marched to Portage, but passed too close to Fort Garry, where Scott was captured and imprisoned by Riel’s garrison once again. Charles Mair and John Christian Schultz travelled through America and later reached Ontario to urge the government for an extensive military expedition to the Red River Settlement. The joint-military operation of the Wolseley Expedition dispatched the Ontario 1st and 60th rifles alongside British troops in May 1870.
