Ambrose Dydine Lepine- (1840-1923)



Ambrose had a magnificent physique 6-3

Splendid proportion, a straight arrow was he

Raven black hair with an aquiline nose,

Eyes of piercing brilliance so the story goes.

His prodigious strength and roughrider skills

-Made him a natural winner; he fit the bill.


Riel’s military lieutenant and chief enforcer

Success from start; he was Riel’s endorser.

The opposition in the RR Settlement he rid

Gov. McDougall, Schultz and Boulton forbid

Rebellion was fought with Lepine influence

“Lepine Avenue” shows Winnipeg allegiance.
