Dear Mr. Pieuk:

Re: Manitoba Metis Federation et al v. Everton et al
Court of Queen's Bench File No. CI 05-01-41955

Further to the above noted matter, please be advised that the plaintiffs have agreed to discontinue their action against my client, the defendant Vanessa Everton.

Because the pleadings have closed it is necessary for the Notice of Discontinuance to be served upon all parties to the action and file their consents.

Accordingly, I enclose herein two copies of a Consent to Discontinueance and one duplicate cover page. I ask that you review the Consent, execute both copies and return same to our office. I also ask that you acknowledge service on the duplicate cover page and return that to me as well.

Please provide our office with the completed Consent and service or, alternatively, your response not later than January 5, 2007. In the event that we do not receive your executed consent by January 5, 2007, it will be necessary to bring a motion to have the court confirm the discontinuance of the action against Ms. Everton, at which time my client will be asking for the maximum costs award possible.

Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at 989-4517.

Yours truly,
ORLE DAVIDSON GIESBRECHT BARGEN LLP

Daryl brings a sportsman's attitude to the practice of law. Clients recognize Daryl as disciplined, with a winning attitude. Rockne wrote that, "One man practicing sportsmanship is far better than 50 preaching it." Daryl is that type of lawyer, he knows that you can't win with just talk, there must be discipline and unity. It is this discipline and unity that he brings to work with him and puts to work for him and his clients. (www.odgb.mb.ca)

Should Directors of a publicly funded corporation be allowed to sue private citizens using taxpayer dollars? It is said there is a price for everything we do in life. Wonder what the cost of this case was?
