aWas unable to enter the North-West Territories, but returned to Ottawa, and campaigned against Manitoba becoming a province. He was listed as leader of the provisional North-West Territories government until Adams G. Archibald took over on May 10, 1870.

Since the establishment of Saskatchewan and Alberta from the Territories' most populated regions, the Territories have had no lieutenant-governor. Instead, a commissioner represents the federal government and acts as the de facto representative of the Queen. Yukon was carved out of the North-West Territories in 1898 and has had its own commissioners since then.
