Yvon Dumont goes on trial April 24, 2006!

Tansi/Good Day Readers:

We have obtained the complete trial "pleadings" for The Honourable Yvon Dumont Canada and Manitoba's first Metis Lieutenant Governor.

By way of brief explanation, this simply means we have accessed every public legal document registered to date in the case - there have been 11. Compare that with A WHOPPING 91 AND GROWING! - the vast preponderance of which have been entered into the official Court record by Federation lawyer Murray Trachtenberg - in the MMF Leadership defamation suit against CyberSmokeSignals.com. Anyone can visit the Court of Queen's Bench File Registry (Provincial Law Courts Building) and for the princely sum of $5 (assuming you're not one of the litigants otherwise it's free) read the material and photocopy your face off! Pleadings generally include pre-trial documents such as: Statements of Claim and Defence; Affidavits; Notice of Motions, as well as, Motion Briefs.

So where do we go from here? Easy:

(1) The lawsuit alleges Mr. Dumont owes the Metis National Council Secretariat approximately $47,000 worth of salary because he left his position as a Goodwill Ambassador to run for President in the 2003 MMF election. The Plaintiffs' further claim by so doing he violated an agreement not to become involved in Metis politics for two years affer leaving Office

(2) Very shortly we will be posting the Statement of Claim Mr. Murray N. Trachtenberg prepared and filed on behalf of the Metis National Council Secretariat. This will be followed by Mr. Dumont's Statement of Defence plus other Court documents of significance

(3) The trial is set to open Monday April 24, 2006 and is scheduled to last four days. ISN'T THAT IRONIC RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LAND CLAIMS CASE OF WHICH THE HONOURABLE YVON DUMONT IS ONE OF THE ORIGINAL SIGNATORIES! Please stay tuned, we have a lot more in the pipeline regarding this lawsuit.
