National Métis Leader Fights Removal From Office

Some of the roughest and most interesting politics practiced in Canada are Metis politics.

"Controversy is brewing in Métis political circles after executives on the Métis National Council voted to oust its Saskatchewan-based president last week.

Clément (Clem) Chartier told CBC News that he will fight the executive's motion to remove him from office, calling the move illegal. Presidents from four of the council's five provinces voted to remove Chartier, saying his term as president had expired.

Ontario, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia voted in favour, while Manitoba opposed the motion."

CBC has the full report ...

These problems come on the heels of electoral fraud in Saskatchewan, where several people have since been convicted of criminal offences related to ballot-box stuffing during the 2004 Saskatchewan Metis Nation election which was subsequently controverted.

This is going to get bigger as the weeks go on.
I am attempting to get some info from the Metis National Council on this issue and hope to have something within a day or so.
I do feel that appointing BC leader Dumont as interim leader, was the right thing to do under the circumstances.

We just aren't getting enough news on this here at the moment. Any updates that you can give would be much appreciated!!
