Bell of Batoche on DocZone

That thing about the bell plundered from Batoche in 1885 and stored in a legion hall in Millbrook, Ontario, until it was, ah, returned to the Metis nation and restored to Batoche.  Seems maybe it's actually the bell of Frog Lake?  CBC DocZone has a doc on the subject tonight.  Preview here

And whatever the status of the bell, it may be an interesting primer on the issues of 1885.
