Message from the President

It was with pride that I watched 17 year old Kayleen McKay arrive at the Alexander Docks in Winnipeg. Kayleen, a young Métis girl, had just completed a 420KM run from Duck Bay to Winnipeg in honour of her cousin who had lost his life in the Red River. Along the way she also raised over $8000 to support the volunteer searchers Drag the Red who help bring closure to families of the missing and murdered by searching for clues along the Red River. When she arrived at the Docks, many staff and friends from the Manitoba Metis Federation were there to welcome her. I am proud to say your Métis Government Ministers and staff of the MMF donated another $6000 at the Docks pushing the amount she raised over ten days to more than $14,000! Other community minded people and organizations like Sylvano Poletta, Vickar Chev-Olds, and D’Arcy & Deacon LLP also contributed in strong ways to the success of Kayleen’s run. Read more
