Selkirk of Red River

This film tells the story of the Red River settlement, now the city of Winnipeg, Manitoba. The pioneer venture of Thomas Douglas, Earl of Selkirk, to establish a colony brought opposition from the North West Company, the Hudson's Bay Company’s powerful rival. A fine cast of actors portrays the ensuing dispute.

    “interesting film. but from what i know of the battle of seven oaks the nwc had no involvement in the battle and did not condone it what soever. the hbc was much more corupt than was portrade. with the crown behind it.” — MACGILLIVRAY, 13 Oct 2011
