Each year, the Métis National Council participates in National Remembrance Day Ceremonies as these ceremonies are very important to Métis 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, United Nations peacekeeping missions and most recently, Afghanistan. President Chartier was joined by MNC communications officer Ke Ning.
President Chartier stated “We remember and thank all Canadian veterans for their many sacrifices in defending world peace; past and present. In particular, the Métis Nation will forever thank and remember the brave women and men of our Nation who so courageously gave their best in the defence of Canada and other peoples of the world during the great wars and the Korean conflict. They returned home and became our modern day leaders and defenders of our rights, the backbone of our struggle for justice and rights in the country they so valiantly stood up for. Many did not return. We shall remember them!”
