GravelleEvery year on November 11, M¨¦tis from across the homeland participate in Remembrance Day Ceremonies. Being part of these ceremonies is very important to M¨¦tis because we have contributed to the defense of Canada as far back as the War of 1812 as well as both World Wars, the Korean Conflict, peacekeeping missions and most recently, Afghanistan. Over the years, many M¨¦tis have served and many have made the ultimate sacrifice. By making the M¨¦tis presence felt at Remembrance Day services, we show our respect for all Veterans and we remind all Canadians of M¨¦tis service and sacrifices.
One such service took place at the Sudbury Arena this November 11 with several M¨¦tis Nation of Ontario (MNO) citizens actively participating. The Rev. Steve Callaghan, M¨¦tis Veteran and Councillor on the MNO Sudbury M¨¦tis Council provided the prayer during the ceremony and a wreath was laid on the Cenotaph on behalf of the MNO by Senator Kempton Gravelle and Gail Charbonneau, M¨¦tis Facilitator at Cambrian College in Sudbury.
