The BC Métis Federation is asking for support for the exoneration of Louis Riel. Please write an email to the two key Federal Indigenous Services Canada Minister’s Bennett and Miller. Copy and paste the following message:
Dear Federal Indigenous Ministers,
I am Métis. Monday, November 16 is the 135th anniversary of the unjust execution of our heroic leader Louis Riel. We believe that reconciliation between Canada and the Metis Nation starts with the Government of Canada exonerating Louis Riel.
I am only one among the vast majority of Métis who desire that Louis Riel be declared innocent. Our historic leader stood for our people’s rights and was guilty of nothing other than defending our right to exist as a nation.
The Métis Nation asks that you act immediately to exonerate Louis Riel.

We need as many emails as possible so please ask your fellow Métis friends/ family members to get involved.
