The federal government has asked the Canadian Standards Association to help define who is a member of the Metis Nation.

The organization that will put the Metis information together also sets the standards for many household products.

That is not sitting well with Metis leaders across the country.

Clement Chartier is the president of the Metis National Council and he spoke to APTN National News about the issue.

  1. What really gets me is when the Metis purport to represent all– then talk about those they don’t— like he did in this interview referring to ‘historic communities’ — whey the heck do you think these historic people needed to form communities? To have REPRESENTATION! In the name of Louis Riel, shame on those that don’t get this, and shame of the lack of accountability for those voicing the concerns of off reserve non status persons in pursuit of their own self interest viewing all of this without account of the lens of colonialism or the reasoning behind the formation of the the Metis in the past– who speaks for us– NO ONE.

  2. There is more to this then the “Metis”– all persons subject to the second generation cut off that do not have Status and have their own respective rights etc. need to be aware of this.

  3. send a complaint to the military tell them theirs a dictator council in Canada that needs to topple…nnthat your peaceful people and your awaiting their orders on what to do…
