Dear Sir:

Re: Nomination Challenge David Chartrand

I acknowledge receipt of your challenge to David Chartrand as a candidate to run as President of the Manitoba Metis Federation.

As advised in the Notice of Election all challenges to candidates were to have been received in our office within seven (7) from the close of nomionations. The close of nominations date was May 12, 2006, which means your challenge would have to have been submitted to our office on or before Many 19, 2006 by 5:00 p.m.

The challenges for electors were to have been submitted to our office by May 21, 2006 by 5:00 p.m.

As your challenge is two (2) days late we cannot accept your challenge.

Yours truly,
Mr. Alvin Zivot, Q.C.
Chief Electoral Officer

c.c. Mr. David Chartrand
Note: A special thank you to Dave Charette for sending us a copy in the midst of his very busy election schedule. Next we'll interview an MMF constitutional expert to determine if the timing as set out in the Notice of Election is consistent with the applicable provision(s) of the Election By-laws.
