The M¨¦tis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Veterans¡¯ Council received a great honour at this year¡¯s AGA in North Bay when they were each presented with an Eagle feather. The feathers were a gift by the MNO Veterans¡¯ Council newest representative, Shelly Claus, who serves as Women¡¯s Representative.
Claus chose to present the Council with this special distinction to recognize their many accomplishments over the last four-year term. In particular, she wished to recognize their unwavering commitment to honour and acknowledge M¨¦tis veterans and their passing of the torch of remembrance to M¨¦tis youth.
A few of the Council¡¯s recent accomplishments include: the publishing of the MNO veterans book¡ªFighting For Canada Before There Was A Canada, Ontario M¨¦tis Veterans Pass the Torch; their attendance at the Welland Museum grand opening with 105 year old M¨¦tis veteran Alex Boucher; the presentation of the Korean Ambassador for Peace Medal to M¨¦tis veteran Jack Cadeau; the 100th anniversary of Vimy Ridge project and many more!
¡°It takes teamwork, dedication, personal money and time to pull these and other events together,¡± said Greg Garratt, MNO Veterans¡¯ Council Secretary and MNO Region 7 Captain of the Hunt. ¡°I look forward to working with the Council and highlighting all the M¨¦tis veterans in upcoming events.¡±
