Today, at a meeting of the Métis National Council General Assembly in Winnipeg, the President of the Métis National Council Clement Chartier released a report entitled “Addressing the Integrity of the Historic Métis Nation Homeland” which contained misinformation and inaccuracies about the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO). A subsequent resolution was brought forward to adopt a Métis Nation historic homeland map and another calling for MNO to be put under a 'probation' period.
“We have always believed that our Métis governments, from Ontario to British Columbia, are much stronger by working together” stated President Froh. "We are extremely disappointed in this decision as it fundamentally ignores what MNO has been fighting for over the last quarter century. This report was in no way informed by any conversations with MNO. The MNO continues to fight for Métis rights and recognition. The MNO's government to government relationship with Canada and Ontario to advance Métis rights remains solid and strong".
More detailed updates with video footage from the Assembly will be provided to MNO Community Councils and MNO Citizens.
