It’s been some 17 years to get to this point for the Metis.

 

Mid Island Metis Nation president, Joy Bremner was commenting after the Supreme Court of Canada ruled Métis and non-status Indians are the responsibility of the federal government…..

 

 

Bremner says it’s unknown how many Metis call Vancouver Island home but, she says, during the last census, in Nanaimo there were just over two thousand people that identified themselves as Metis.
