Created by Winnipeg artist Miguel Joyal, the statue of Louis Riel was unveiled on the south grounds of the Manitoba Legislative Building in May 1996. It replaced a controversial statue of Riel by Marcien Lemay and Etienne Gaboury unveiled in December 1971 that was moved to the College Universitaire de St. Boniface in 1995.
