Metis Nation of Ontario Urges Action by Feds

Ontario Metis are looking for action from the federal government in response to a pair of recent court cases that favoured Metis people.

It includes a land claims issue in Manitoba.

Ontario Metis president Gary Lipinski says the ruling is only a first step towards the feds actually dealing with land claims issues.

Lipinski is also disappointed with the feds wanting to drag out another court ruling that recognizes Metis being under federal jurisdiction the same way First Nations are.
