BC Métis Federation would like to share some latest news coverage from “The Source”, a newspaper that is a forum on diversity. This article comes from the May 12-26, 2015 issue and covered the BCMF Vancouver Metis Community Meeting held on April 25th, 2015.
Here is a excerpt from the article.
Solving the confusion around community representation was part of the agenda at the recent BC Metis Federation (BCMF) gathering held at the Pinnacle Hotel April 25. It was a chance for Vancouver members to address their issues and concerns, as well as to propose new initiatives and celebrate Metis culture. A larger project is The Louis Riel Symposium being planned to exonerate Louis Riel, the Metis leader who was hanged for treason in 1885.
“We have a number of members from different areas, so we wanted to check in with the community. People want to see community groups reformed,” says Keith Henry, president of the BCMF.
