How did the Metis act when Ruperts land was purchased by Canada?

Today the term Metis refer to all those of European and Aboriginal mixed blood but when Canada purchased Ruperts Land, complete with people, Metis referred to French and Aboriginal mixed bloods. Most mixed bloods in Ruperts Land were Scottish Aboriginal or British Aboriginal and that is still the case for Western Canada. This answer will refer to all those of European Aboriginal mixed blood as Metis. They responded as anyone would if they had found themselves being sold to a new country without being consulted. First with questions, then with action which included creating their own government to talk to Canada with. Canada would not accept any such governments in their colonies and responded violently. The Metis and other met violence with violence but were out numbered and out gunned.

How did confederation affect the métis on ruperts land?

Negatively. Once Confederated Canada looked to colonize Ruperts Land which they eventually did. The Metis and many, some say most, locals (those living in Ruperts Land before being sold to Canada) did not agree with Canadian Colonisation of what they saw as their land. Canada used military force and fraud to quell rebellions to control and manipulate the Metis until large numbers of Canadian immigrants were used to make the locals, including the Metis, a minority in their own land. This was meant to and did disenfranchise them from the political processes that would create Canadian provinces and territories from Canada's new Colonies. It was even worst for those "mixed breeds" of English and Scottish descent. Canada's deep cultural connections to the French had resulted in them being referred to as "Metis" a French/Latin word. Not likely one they would have chosen. Even today within the Metis community some do not consider them "real" Metis because they are not French. The Metis, including those of Scottish, English and French descent lost lands, cultures and a major role in the political systems that rule them due to the Confederation of British Colonies to the East.

Who built the red river rebellion?

Canada, Britain and the Hudson Bay Company. By ignoring the people who were already living in and on the land when HBC sold Ruperts Land they put the rightful owners of the land in the position of having to assert their rightful claims by any means necessary. When it became clear that Canada was not going to acknowledge their claims any means necessary meant trying to use force to defend their lands. That didn't work out too good.
