Métis want recognition for their WWII veterans

OTTAWA—The president of the Métis National Council is urging the federal government to formally recognize the contribution of Métis veterans in the Second World War before it is too late for remaining survivors to find redress and get post-war benefits.

The timing is important because the ranks of surviving veterans are dwindling as the years go on, said Clement Chartier.
