MMF president says he’s going anyway
Apr 19, 2018
The Manitoba Metis Federation and Manitoba government can’t even agree on who cancelled a meeting set for Friday.
The meeting between Crown Services Minister Cliff Cullen and MMF president David Chartrand, along with Manitoba Hydro president Kelvin Shepherd, was supposed to address an agreement Hydro had negotiated with the MMF.
The meeting’s apparent cancellation won’t stop Chartrand, who says he’s going to show up at the Legislature anyway.
Last month, the province said no to a deal between the MMF and Hydro that would have seen the Crown corporation pay the MMF just under $70 million over several decades.
