Governing Metis Indigeneity: The Settler-Colonial Dispossession and Regulation of the Metis in Mid-Twentieth Century Manitoba

David Parent
2021
In the final chapter, using my own historic Metis community of Minnewaken as a case study I demonstrate how the Rural Municipality of Coldwell dispossessed Metis residents who went from owning 4000 acres  ...  In the first half I engage dominant Canadian historiography in order to trace out a broader governing apparatus that possessed technologies of education, employment, immigration, and health aided in normalizing  ...  Thus, racial governmentality shifted over time from a bodily to a spatial application.  ...

Geospatially Partitioning Public Transit Networks for Open Data Publishing

Harm Delva, Julián Andrés Rojas, Pieter Colpaert, Ruben Verborgh
2021 Journal of Web Engineering  
In our prior work we have shown that geospatially partitioning an operator's network can improve query times for client-side route planning applications by a factor of 2.4.  ...  However, it remains unclear whether this works for all network types, or other kinds of applications.  ...  We used four different clustering methods to partition a single public transit network and evaluated each method's effect on the query performance of a client-side route planning application.  ...

First Nations, Métis and Inuit Health and the Law: A Framework for the Future

Yvonne Boyer, Université D'Ottawa / University Of Ottawa, Université D'Ottawa / University Of Ottawa
2011
First Nations, Métis and Inuit Health and the Law: A Framework for the Future charts the development of ill health from a formerly healthy, disease-free Aboriginal society pre-contact.  ...  For these reasons, a study of Aboriginal health must reflect a holistic approach that considers the importance of key health determinants.  ...  Vancouver: University of British Columbia Press, 1991. p. 161 -197; Chrisjohn, Roland, Sherri Young and Michael Maraun (1997) 186 -203; La Prairie, Carol (1987) "Native Women and Crime in Canada: A  ...

Performance optimization for agent-based traffic simulation by dynamic agent assignment

Hiroki Kanezashi, Toyotaro Suzumura
2015 2015 Winter Simulation Conference (WSC)  
We used METIS (Karypis and Kumar 1999) as network partitioning program to generate a mapping file from agent ID to X10. In the default option, METIS divides network into the non-contiguous network.  ...  The synchronization overheads are remarkable, so we added a framework to control synchronization according to congestion of road network.  ...

Challenges of Translating HPC Codes to Workflows for Heterogeneous and Dynamic Environments

Fayssal Benkhaldoun, Christophe Cerin, Imad Kissami, Walid Saad
2017 2017 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS)  
In this paper we would like to share our experience for transforming a parallel code for a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) problem into a parallel version for the RedisDG workflow engine.  ...  We show how to move to the field of "HPC as a Service" in order to use heterogeneous platforms.  ...  Yet another advantage of ADAPT is to focus in streamers which can be used in many applications (treatment of contaminated media, etching and deposition of thin films…).  ...

Beyond Doctrines of Dominance: Conceptualizing a Path to Legal Recognition and Affirmation of the Manitoba Métis Treaty

D'Arcy G. Vermette, Université D'Ottawa / University Of Ottawa, Université D'Ottawa / University Of Ottawa
2012
The Manitoba Métis Treaty was intended to guarantee the Métis a land base in Manitoba the total size of which was to be 1.4 million acres.  ...  Eventually, the Métis negotiated favourable terms with Ottawa which, this thesis argues, represented according to law, and to the Métis, a treaty.  ...  paramount estate" 236 which gave the Crown the "absolute exclusive right to extinguish the Indian title either by conquest or by purchase". 237 But Canadian common law did not hang on to the notion that a  ...

"Les gens de cette place": Oblates and the Evolving Concept of Métis at Île-à-Crosse, 1845-1898

Timothy P. Foran, Université D'Ottawa / University Of Ottawa, Université D'Ottawa / University Of Ottawa
2011
In the process, this dissertation challenges the orthodox notion that Oblate commentators simply discovered and described a singular, empirically existing and readily identifiable Métis population.  ...  In particular, this study illuminates processes that shaped Oblate concepts of sauvage and métis.  ...  In applying the term métis to the resident population of Île-à-la-Crosse, Catholic missionaries set aside the linguistic, social, cultural and geographic criteria that had previously informed their application  ...
