The first set of images were taken at the Manitoba legislative building. The final image from that set shows a statue of local historical figure Louis Riel. In 1995 this statue replaced an older Riel monument which (much like the history of Riel himself) was shrouded in controversy. (Related: Controversy in the Commemoration of Louis Riel.)

Manitoba has a proud history of radical politics, including Louis Riel and the Winnipeg General Strike of 1919, (considered by many to be Canada's most influencial general strike.) (Related: Radical Politics in Winnipeg: 1899-1915.)
