Beauval Man Launches MNS Presidential Campaign

A resident of Beauval launched his campaign today for the presidency of the Metis Nation of Saskatchewan.


Alex Maurice held a news conference in Saskatoon this morning.


Maurice was most recently an MNS area director in northwest Saskatchewan before deciding to campaign for MNS president.


He says he decided to jump into the race at the urging of other Metis leaders, and believes his integrity and negotiating skills are his biggest assets.


Maurice also hopes to reach out to Metis citizens who have grown weary of seeing a revolving door of familiar names running things at the MNS.


Maurice says his agenda emphasizes change and the push for Metis self-governance within the context of last year’s Powley decision.


Metis in Saskatchewan go to the polls on May 26th.


Maurice is running against Dwayne Roth and Robert Doucette.
