Memorable Manitobans: George Gunn (1833-?)

Farmer.

A Scots mixed-blood, he was a Poplar Point merchant and farmer. He was a delegate to the November 1869 council from Ste. Anne’s. Subsequently, he was chosen councillor to the new provisional government from Ste. Anne’s on 28 February 1870 because he might have refused to serve if selected informally. A Red River Rebellion claimant, he was awarded nothing in compensation. He was a candidate in the 1870 provincial general election.
