The Trial of Louis Riel
About the Author

George R.D. Goulet

George R.D. Goulet is a 12th-generation Canadian, a direct descendent of Louis Hebert (Canada's first permanent colonial settler). The author was born at St. Boniface, Manitoba. He obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Manitoba (St. Paul's College), his Bachelor of Laws degree with first class honours from the University of Manitoba Law School, and a Master of Laws degree from the University of Toronto. The author practised law for 35 years in Winnipeg, Vancouver and Calgary.  He is the author of the legal text Public Share Offerings and Stock Exchange Listings in Canada (CCH Canadian Limited, 1994) and, with his wife Terry, co-authored The Metis - Memorable Events and Memorable Personalities (FabJob Inc. 2006).

Pierre Delorme (the author's great grandfather) was in Louis Riel's Provisional Government in Manitoba in 1869-70, and in the first federal election after Manitoba entered Confederation was elected as the member from Provencher.  He was also elected to the Manitoba Legislature and was a Cabinet Minister. The author is a grand-nephew of Elzear Goulet, who was a friend of Louis Riel and is referred to in this book.
