M¨¦tis Nation of Ontario (MNO) President Gary Lipinski offered his congratulations to Prime Minister-designate Justin Trudeau for his convincing election victory on October 19.
¡°We were very pleased that Prime Minister-designate Trudeau addressed important M¨¦tis issues during the campaign and are hopeful that his commitment to advancing and achieving reconciliation with the M¨¦tis Nation can become a reality,¡± explained President Lipinski.
In its M¨¦tis-specific policy platform, the Liberal Party committed to a renewed ¡°nation-to-nation relationship¡± with the M¨¦tis Nation as well as ?¡°establish[ing] a federal claims process that sets out a framework to address M¨¦tis rights protected by s. 35 of the Constitution Act, 1982, recognize M¨¦tis self-government, and resolve outstanding M¨¦tis claims against the Crown.¡± ?It also committed to ¡°undertak[ing] a collaborative review, in partnership with M¨¦tis communities, of existing federal programs and services available to the M¨¦tis Nation, to identify gaps and areas where strategic investments are needed in order to improve M¨¦tis quality of life¡± and creating a five-year M¨¦tis Economic Development Strategy with an immediate investment of $25 million over five years.
¡°The MNO looks forward to working together with the new Liberal Government in implementing these M¨¦tis-specific commitments, amongst other commitments to Indigenous people, for a stronger M¨¦tis Nation and Canada. ?In particular, the commitment to finally engage in a meaningful process to address M¨¦tis rights and claims is a significant breakthrough for our rights-bearing communities here in Ontario,¡± said President Lipinski.
During the campaign, Prime Minister-designate Trudeau also committed to meeting with the M¨¦tis Nation¡¯s leadership on an annual basis in order to ensure a new, collaborative and respectful relationship is built. ?¡°We are looking forward to our meetings with the new government,¡± explained President Lipinski, ¡°as we believe these will provide the opportunity for the M¨¦tis Nation and Canada to begin the important work of meaningful reconciliation.¡±
