    CBC celebrates 75 years of Regional Programming (Clip 7)

    The Cree called it Miscousipi, Red Water River, and warned early settlers about its hidden capacity for destruction. We know it as the RED River now and we’re now well acquainted with the destruction it can wreak. Listen to a report from 1950. Until well into the 20th century Metis leader Louis Riel was regarded as misguided and impetuous at best and a psychotic traitor at worst. But more than 100 years after a Tory government hanged Riel for treason, Brian Mulroney's government said Canada had matured as a nation and called for official recognition of Riel's, "unique and historic role as a founder of Manitoba and for his contribution in the development of Confederation." This clip is from 1992- former Prime Minister Joe Clark.
