Regina Metis Scrip Claims

Regina is adjacent to the old Fort McLeod/Fort Walsh Trail that led eastward through Whoop-Up to Fort Walsh in the Cypress Hills, which was established in 1874 and became headquarters of the North West Mounted Police in 1878. The trail continued eastward to Fort QuAppelle, passing just east of Moose Jaw and north of Regina. It was a regular trade route and an overland thoroughfare connecting the outposts of the fur trade activities. Regina was established in 1882 when it became clear that Edgar Dewdney, the lieutenant-governor of the NWT, rejected the previously established and considered, Troy and Fort QuAppelle, both some 30 mi (48 km) to the east), as the territorial seat of government: these were widely considered to be much better locations for what was anticipated would be a major centre for the Canadian plains. They were situated in amply watered and treed rolling parklands whereas "Pile-of-Bones," as Regina was then called, was in the midst of arid and featureless grassland. However, Lieutenant-Governor Dewdney had acquired land adjacent to the route of the future CPR line at Pile-of-Bones, which was distinguished only by collections of bison bones near a small spring run-off called Wascana Creek that eventually flows into the QuAppelle River near Lumsden, Saskatchewan. There was an "obvious conflict of interest" in Dewdney's choosing the site of Pile-of-Bones as the territorial seat of government and it was a national scandal at the time. It was renamed Regina after Queen Victoria.
