David Orr, who was a judge in Moose Jaw from
1996 to 2007, has written a book about Louis Riel.
When David Orr was a boy, an older Metis fellow, Harry Hourie, used to come into his father’s store in Regina.
“He was a huge old man, 6’6” or so. He wore a cowboy hat and a buckskin jacket. He would’ve been 85 years old,” he said. “He told my dad stories of the old west,” said Orr.
