April 26, 2016. The Métis Nation of Alberta will host a gathering April 30 to celebrate the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision in the Daniels case. On April 14, SCC ruled that Métis and non-Status Indians came under federal jurisdiction. MNA counsel Jason Madden will attend the celebration, to be held at the Blatchford Air Hangar at Fort Edmonton Park, to talk about the decision. MNA President Audrey Poitras will be addressing the group. A stew and bannock feast, cultural entertainment, and dance will round out the free celebration.
