President David Chartrand Applauds Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change

Ottawa, ON - President Chartrand applauds the leadership of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Premiers who believe and share the same values as the Métis Nation.

“Our children and Citizens never need fear we bargained away or sold our future,” said President Chartrand in response to the finalized Pan-Canadian Framework on Clean Growth and Climate Change.

During a full and tense day of discussions and negotiations on Climate Change, the Métis effected changes to the Pan-Canadian Framework Agreement to ensure Métis are not only mentioned but included and participants in developing a climate change solution for not only our province but our country. This plan will be reflective of our values and needs as Métis Citizens.

“The planet is sending us a message and a challenge that we as leaders must meet,” President Chartrand stated, “The actions we take now are not only for today, but will also form all our tomorrows. We cannot change what has been done, but we can set a better path for the future. The Métis Nation is ready to be a part of a cleaner, healthier environment. We are ready to walk with the Prime Minister and the rest of Canada towards this goal. This is a great day to be Métis and a great day to be Canadian.”
