The Metis people scored big time with the Supreme Court of Canada today.
They are now considered “Indians” and entitled to the same services as status Indians in Canada.
I spoke with the president of the Manitoba Metis Federation, David Chartrand, who was more than pleased to talk about the ruling.
There are more hog barns coming to Manitoba. After a years-long ban, the provincial government has opened the door to new facilities. I chatted with the general manager of the Manitoba Pork Council, Andrew Dickson, about some of the restrictions on these new barns and the state of the industry in our province.
