Louis Riel Day at Vancouver City Hall

Posted by on

In 2014 MNBC was successful in pursuit of the very first proclamation by Vancouver Mayor and Council honouring Nov  9th -16th, 2014 "Louis Riel Week".   Today, after 2 years of MNBC and the City working together to recognize the significance of raising the flag at City Hall, MNBC is thrilled that Vancouver Métis Citizens Association pursued and achieved the raising of the flag and proclamation for 2016! 
 
"It is a very proud day for Métis Citizens all across our province.  The commitment of government to the Métis is strong , and as a result many Métis are witnessing this today on a number of historic fronts" said Regional Director Gary Biggar.
