Title: Untitled – The Politics of the Alberta Métis Association
Creator: J.P. or James Brady
Subject: Métis, Politics, Alberta, Brady, James
Description: In this brief paper, written in 1942 and undoubtedly influenced by the war, argues that the Alberta Métis Colonies and by their extension, political life have been corrupted by the Church and the government’s paternalism towards the Métis. Brady even argues that the Church’s retrograde thinking has even taken hold of one of his comrades, Joe Dion. Brady suggests that Socialism is the only equitable system which the Métis should use to govern themselves. This article is part of the James Brady Papers, which were donated to the Gabriel Dumont Institute in the 1990s by author and activist, Murray Dobbin. Dobbin used this collection to write his book about James Brady and Malcolm Norris entitled “The One-And-A-Half Men: The Story of Jim Brady & Malcolm Norris, Metis Patriots of the 20th Century”. Transcribed by David Morin and edited by Christine Charmbury and Darren R. Préfontaine. This document has been re-transcribed from the original and includes all spelling and grammatical errors.
