The Métis Nation of Saskatchewan will be dealing with the contentious issue of constitutional and governance reform at an assembly this weekend in Saskatoon.

Most members of the provincial council say this assembly violates the MNS constitution, particularly the proposed streamlining.

But President Robert Doucette says previous meetings of Métis citizens have made it clear they want changes to the organization’s structure.

“I can’t tell you what the governance is going to look like, there were a lot of proposed amendments that were made by Métis people at the community level, I never proposed one, despite what is being said out in the media, I haven’t signed any of those amendments,” he says.

Doucette says Métis citizens who attend this weekend’s gathering will decide how governance reform will proceed.
