Loyalist College became the first post-secondary institution to be presented with a copy of Fighting for Canada Before There Was A Canada, the book produced by the M¨¦tis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Veterans¡¯ Council.
On January 13, MNO Veterans¡¯ Council Chair Guy Mandeville visited the Aboriginal Resource Centre at Loyalist College and presented a copy of the book to Paul Latchford, the Manager of the Aboriginal Resource Centre.
¡°They are doing excellent work,¡± Mandeville stated in an article published in Loyalist College¡¯s newsletter. ¡°Even non-Aboriginal students come in and use the facilities, and the idea is to encourage all students to educate themselves about Aboriginal history.¡±
Latchford congratulated the MNO Veterans¡¯ Council on its efforts to share stories from M¨¦tis veterans.
¡°All of this information is accessible, but this group has taken the initiative to bring it together. This book is a wonderful resource for Loyalist faculty, staff and students,¡± he said.
Fighting For Canada Before There Was A Canada is a compilation of stories contributed by M¨¦tis veterans, their families or friends, detailing the veterans¡¯ experiences in combat and non-combat roles.
