For Immediate Release



Métis Nation of Alberta responds to ‘60s Scoop Settlement Announcement

by Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett



Edmonton, AB October 17, 2017 – Citizens of the Métis Nation of Alberta, The Métis Nation of Alberta is very disappointed in the Federal government’s omission of Métis people from the recently announced compensation program for survivors of the “60’s Scoop.”

Working with the Métis National Council, who have already responded to Minister Bennett, the Federal Minister of Indigenous Relations, MNA is calling for the fair and equitable treatment of Métis Nation citizens who were victimized by this horrendous Government program.

Minister, I truly believed Canada was on the path of doing what is right for Métis people. Don’t let us down.

Throughout everything we do, we will always have one foot firmly rooted in the past, acknowledging the work and the struggles of those who have come before us. Our other foot will always be moving forward, pushing for a better future of Métis pride, Métis rights, and a strong Métis Nation.

In solidarity,

Audrey Poitras
President
Métis Nation of Alberta
