NationTalk speaks to Gary Lipinski, President of the Métis Nation of Ontario. 

In 1999 an action was launched against the federal court by Harry Daniels and the Congress of Aboriginal Peoples. It sought recognition of three basic principles including Métis and non-status Indians are Indians within the Constitution and the Crown hands the same fiduciary responsibility to them as Aboriginal people in Canada and that Canada must negotiate and consult with Métis and non-status Indians with respect to their rights, interests and needs as Aboriginal peoples. 14 years later the Federal Court affirmed the Aboriginal rights of Metis and non-status Indians. However the Federal Government have appealed this ruling. Gary Lipinski tells us about the court ruling and it’s implications.
