Thomas Scott, an Orangeman, was found guilty of defying the authority of the provisional government, fighting with his guards, and insulting the president — crimes not usually considered capital at the time — and sentenced to death.
For example, shortly after the Red River Rebellion the Canadian government began a program which speculators and other non-Métis exploited to dispossess the Métis of their land; had Scott not been executed, the government might well have supervised the program more rigorously, given the good relations between Canada and the Métis until that time.

 Forget Magazine - Remember, Remember, Remember
In contrast the Red River case, the North West Rebellion itself was less telling of how the politics of this time and region reflects and influences the politics of indigenous people in Canada generally and to this day.
This difference between the Red River and North West Rebellions is reflected not only in the charges and demands produced by leaders such as Riel, but also in the very blunt words and actions of Canadian political leaders.
Thus, the very element that made the North West Rebellion less significant and successful than the Red River Rebellion, that being the massive military force brought against the Métis and their allies, served to fortify Canada's political and economic infrastructure by compelling the federal government to expend the necessary resources to defeat this resistance.

In this, he was deluded, but late in 1869, as the Red River rebellion was unfolding, unfortunate circumstances combined to vest him with the military command of the pro-Canadian forces in the North-West, a command which (to be kind), he discharged less than well.
In Red River, as in the Fenian raid, he had proved a poor commander—one too eager to commit himself and his men, one too eager to flee when his actions proved precipitate.

In the Red River region, the Provisional government's first act of 'state-sanctioned' violence was its most famous; the execution of an English-Protestant prisoner, Thomas Scott, who was among those captured as they sought to invade Fort Garry and overthrow the government under its newly elected President, Louis Riel.
Although this dynamic generated its greatest national articulation in the nineteenth-century after the second resistance in 1885, when it was a mobilizing force for Québécois nationalism, the Red River Rebellion compelled a French-English constitutional compromise to the political demands of the Provisional government.
As the summer of 1870 drew near, the Red River conflict became of interest to groups whose respective positions were shaped by their interpretations of what the Métis fight for sovereignty outside Canada's boundaries meant for political relations inside those boundaries.

 Halfbreeds, Settlers and Rebels -- Tom Bacig -- University of Minnesota Duluth
In so far as the Times was a "national" Newspaper by 1869 and was reflecting popular attitudes towards the Métis and their rebellion, it is clear that by the end of December 1869, for Americans, the events in Red River were no longer Indian trouble but a settlers rebellion against despotic foreign authority.
The real goal of the leaders of the rebellion is "to strike for independence." Those who supported the Canadian government tried to raise the Indians against the French settlers and have been routed by the settlers.
