Best Answer

Canada's purchase of the prairie provinces from the Hudson's Bay Company did not really take into account the inhabitants of that territory. Since the Maritime provinces and British Columbia were colonies, their populations were consulted before they joined the new confederation. The First Nations and Métis, along with those fur traders living in HBC forts through the prairies and the NWT were not consulted - it was a land purchase. The North West Rebellion was the reaction of one community at what to them was a takeover of their land without any consultation or chance to accept or reject terms.
