Biographical history

James Patrick Brady, 1908-1967?, was born near St. Paul, Alberta, the son of James Brady, Sr., an Irish immigrant, and Philomena Garneau, a Metis from Strathcona. Throughout his life he was an advocate of native rights, and a strong supporter of democratic socialism. He was a founding member of the Metis Association of Alberta, which worked to secure land for Metis squatters. He promoted cooperative ventures to give his people an economic base. In 1941 he became supervisor of the government-sponsored Wolf Lake Metis Colony. He fought overseas during the Second World War, and on his return moved to Saskatchewan where he worked for the CCF government's Department of Mineral Resources, establishing Metis cooperatives. He retired to La Ronge, Saskatchewan about 1950 due to differences with the CCF government. He disappeared in June 1967 while on a prospecting trip in northern Saskatchewan.
