The below document is being sent to every political party in the upcoming federal election. We have asked for their responses by August 25. The platform represents what MMF believes are key priorities for Metis citizens.
We expect to post on this site the verbatim response of each party to the platform we have formulated. And will try to advise citizens as new items are added so that they can evaluate for themselves the responsiveness of each party.
We also expect to ask very direct questions of each party and will be posting the questions and any responses for you, our citizens, as we receive them.
