David Faribault senior, a Métis defendant who was educated among whites and fluent in English, wrote that even he did not even understand that he was on trial for his life.  One commission member, William Marshall, frankly admitted he could not give the men accused a fair trial.  The sixth amendment, which guarantees the right to assistance of council, was specifically denied.
