A Page of the History of the Schools in Manitoba During 75 Years, 1893 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from A Page of the History of the Schools in Manitoba During 75 Years, 1893 The first order for establishing a school, in this country. Came then from Quebec and from a Catholic bishop. All those who have the least notion of the history of Canada, know that Bishop Plessis was a glory to the country by the force of his genius as well as by the splendor of his virtues. It is also well known that his authority over those who were under his jurisdiction, greatly contributed in keep ing Canada and the Northwest under the allegiance to Great Britain, at the time of the war with the United States. What every one does not know is that the first schools of the Red river are due to the instructions, given by him to his priests and followed by these mission aries, notwithstanding great difficulties. Another fact, not universally known, is that on account of the services that Mgr. Plessis had rendered to the crown, he had gained the confidence of the authorities, who had recourse to him, in the direction of public affairs, and who seconded his zeal, in the accomplishment of his own duties; one may be easily convinced of this by the following letter given by the governor-general to Mgr. Plessis, when the later decided to send priests and establish missions and schools in the Red river settlement.
