Will the real Metis Veterans please stand up!

Frank Godon has left a new comment on your post, "All aboard Air MMF!"

According to the MMF website
the money for this trip comes from:

President Chartrand went on to thank Veterans Affairs Canada and the Office of the Federal Interlocutor for Métis for their assistance in making the monument possible and providing resources for Métis Nation veterans and youth to participate in its dedication ceremony: “We are encouraged by this partnership and look forward to continued efforts of turning this truly great vision into a reality for November 2009.”

It clearly states that the funding was put in place so the veterans and youth can "participate in its dedication ceremony."

Maybe the Board of Directors thinks that they are "youth" - other than John Fluery I don't think any of the others who have been in the military to qualify them as veterans!
Dear Frank Godon:

Thank you for writing. As always, the devil is in the detail. Exactly, how much money did the federal government (Veterans Affairs/Office of the Interlocutor) give the MMF. What conditions, if any, did they place on disbursement? Subject of a third letter to David Chartrand Mr. Godon?
