Council Of Assiniboia
Appointed by the Hudson's Bay Company, for the
government of the colonists in their territory. The first meeting was
held Feb. 12, 1835, with Sir George Simpson as president. Bishop Tache,
Alexander Christie, Alexander Ross, Cuthbert Ross, and ten others formed
the Council. The Council, among other useful work, organized a volunteer
corps for defensive and police purposes; divided the settlements into
four districts with a magistrate for each; and made provision for a
public building. =Index=: (Mackenzie / Selkirk / Simpson era) Established by Hudson's Bay Company, 223;
