No Place for the Founders of Manitoba in Throne Speech

Winnipeg, MB - It is no surprise that the Métis Nation’s Manitoba Métis Community was not included in today’s Throne Speech. There is nothing for the Métis Nation in this speech apart from a continuing lack of provincial vision. There is nothing but a hollow and vague commitment to advancing reconciliation with Indigenous people in Manitoba.
 

The Manitoba Métis are taxpayers and builders of this province we founded. As contributors to Manitoba’s growth, we would expect to be a continuing part of its success. Unfortunately, we are not a part of this provincial government’s future plans. In Pallister’s mind, Métis will never fit into his kingdom.

Believe in Yourself; Believe in Métis.
 
The Manitoba Metis Federation (MMF) is the official democratic and self-governing political representative for the Métis Nation’s Manitoba Métis Community. The Manitoba Métis are Canada’s Negotiating Partner in Confederation and the Founders of the Province of Manitoba.
