He convinced the government to set a side a large chunk of land for the Metis, called Manitoba. Soon after he succeeded in this, he was driven out of the country and was forced to take refuge with a friend in American. During that time it was said that he began to think of himself as a profit of God. When he eventually returned to Canada, he became a representative of a local Metis rebellion and was arrested and sent to jail. Riel was found guilty and sentenced to death on November 16, 1885.
Riel showed incredible bravery when he was defending the Metis people in the Red River rebellion. He was was also very selfless and dedicated to the Metis. Louis Riel is the perfect example of a remarkable leader because he was role model, a revolutionary and never gave up on his believes.

I chose Louis Riel and Terry Fox because I think both of them have helped change history and are incredible role models. Louis Riel dedicated his entire life to helping win the Metis there rights back. Terry Fox also sacrificed his life to help others, although he did not fight in a gun battle like Riel, he fought a battle against cancer. Both of this amazing Canadian heroes worked were brave, passionate, dedicated, inspirational and helped change history.
