How did the conflict occur?

Was it just because of the land? I'm having some trouble understanding. Please explain to me.

The conflict was about land. The Metis's homes and land were on Hudson's Bay Company property. The company turned over their land to the new Canadian government. The Metis didn't have official ownership of their land and were afraid of the Canadian government taking over their homes and land.

Thank you so so so much for the information Ms. Sue. I understand so much better when someone posts things in their own words on here, its a simpler version than of the sites. Thanks so much:)

That doesn't make sense. Why did the Hudson Bay Company turn their land to the new Canadian government? Who was the new Canadian government? And if they hadn't turned their land to the new Canadian government in the first place, then they wouldn't have to worry about that government taking over their homes and land.
