Interim Liberal Leader Bill Graham will be making a stop in Saskatchewan today, including La Ronge.


Graham is scheduled to meet with some of the province’s First Nations and Metis leaders in La Ronge late this afternoon.


His aides say, among other things, he will be talking about the METSI funding issue, residential schools and the Primose Lake Air Weapons Range settlement package for Metis communities.


Graham’s audience will include Lac La Ronge Indian Band chief Tammy Cook-Searson, members of the Prince Albert Grand Council executive and La Ronge mayor Joe Hordyski.


Desnethe-Missinippi-Churchill River MP Gary Merasty will be accompanying Graham during his visit to La Ronge.
