MNS VP Candidate Promises “User Friendly” Voting

A former Mountie from Green Lake is hoping to be the next vice president of the Metis Nation of Saskatchewan.


Randy Morin currently lives in Saskatoon, where he recently received a diploma in business administration.


Morin says, if he’s elected, he would work to make sure the Metis electoral system becomes more “user friendly” to Metis citizens.


Morin says many Metis citizens have lost confidence in the Metis Nation of Saskatchewan, especially when it comes to accessing funding for post-secondary education.


And while he lists post-secondary funding as one of the most important issues facing Metis today, he also says it’s time the Metis Nation became less reliant on government funding.


Morin says he’s not running in a slate of candidates, but doesn’t have a problem with candidates who choose to go that way.


Morin’s competition in Wednesday’s election includes Guy Bouvier, Angus McKay and Bob McLeod.
