The Canadian Constitution recognizes god as being supreme, thereby recognizing Natural Law. We are born as individuals and live our lives as an individual in the eyes of God and the World; therefore all our rights are individual. As with individual rights comes the responsibility for everyone to be part of the negotiations process. The Canadian Constitution of 1982 Section 32 (1) and (2) recognizes First Nation, Inuit, and Métis as being equal. The Daniels vs. Canada 2016 is not even needed to assert the rights of the Métis, we all have the right to determine our future within Canada. We also have to be aware of the fact that the Canadian Judicial system is filled with words of misdirection and double meanings, sometimes called allegory.

With the existing parameters and the various Métis Nations, who are organized by regions such as provincial boundaries (i.e. Métis Nation - Saskatchewan, Métis Nation of Alberta). This use of names and jurisdictions are a recognition of conquering nation and the subjugation of the Métis, that doesn’t apply to the Métis if we so chose. For the Métis to be a true Nation, they have to take ownership of themselves. They have use representation by traditional gathering areas or by Clans. Otherwise, we will always be subjugated under the auspices of the government of Canada and will never have true Nation Status.

 As a Nation that has never had any of the Indigenous rights to hunt, fish, gather self-govern or any other rights negotiated with the crown. We have the right to enter into treaty negations and have this dealt with and a fair and just manner. We have to seek justice for 150 years of tyranny and compensation for unjust acts against a people, who were used a scapegoat for the formation of the country of Canada. Potentially, we can have land and economic base from which we can attain true nationhood status. Enriching the lives of many that have been second class people in a nation that overlooked their responsibility and neglected their obligations.

We can be like the Tsilhqot’in Nation and have jurisdiction of our own. In 2015 the 8-0 ruling confirmed that the Tsilhqot'in have title to a 1,750 square kilometers region which the band had historically occupied. The province of British Columbia and Canadian Government or any Corporation no longer claim any right to any activities on these lands without prior approval from the Tsilhqot'in. This is a precedent in the courts of Canada, with Rule of Law this can be used to achieve the true Métis Nationhood.

 The Métis, Bois Brule, Half-breeds or Katipayimsosik were from the Battle of Seven Oaks in 1816 to the 1885 “Northwest Rebellion” which should be called the Protection of Métis Homeland. Nothing happened on its vast expanse without some involvement of these proud and noble people. From the formation of the province of Manitoba to the signing of the Treaties by First Nations, the Métis were an integral part of the western plains. They were the mediators between the white fur-traders and the plains Indians, having a stokehold in both cultures. This was the time in history of the Métis people.

 After reading the Core Governance Agreement with the Métis Nation - Saskatchewan and The Crown from this July 2019. There are several concerns of mine that felt should be addressed. The Métis natural person of Saskatchewan and the other jurisdictions have to be properly notified of subjugation and adherence to the Métis Nations and the Canadian Government.

 

This applies to 

Section 3.01

Section 13.01

Section 8.01 (b)

 

The Métis Nation - Saskatchewan, shall not act concerning the jurisdiction of Métis of Saskatchewan without their knowledge. The Mandate was given to the Métis Nation Saskatchewan by the Canadian Government to represent the Métis of Saskatchewan is not applicable unless the Métis of this jurisdiction are notified and properly educated in this regard. No Métis laws shall apply to the natural person Métis without their consent or knowledge.
