RCMP investigation triggered audit of national Métis organization 

 Métis National Council Minister of Finance David Chartrand says the audit will show the organization's finances are clean. (Lyza Sale/CBC)  The federal government launched an ongoing financial probe of a national Métis organization following a meeting with investigators with the RCMP, CBC News has learned.  The federal Crown-Indigenous Relations Department hired Ernst & Young to conduct a compliance audit that began in July 2018 of the Métis National Council (MNC), which receives millions of dollars annually from the federal government for its operations.

The audit was launched after department officials met with investigators from the RCMP's sensitive and international investigations unit who had opened a case on the MNC, according to email correspondence between the former employees and RCMP investigators obtained by CBC News.  https://www.cbc.ca/news/indigenous/metis-national-council-audit-1.520861


BILL 6 PARODY: - using story as part of the political process. 

For those who don't know, Bill 6 is a government bill passed by the then new NDP Gov't in Alberta  - majority gov't can do just about anything they want. 'SOCIAL ENGINEERING BY GOVERNMENT' is never a good idea . . .
Stunning ACTRESS SUMMER PENNEY does a great job in this video – a natural on a horse for what was required here. We asked her for a bit of a girly girly look – and admittedly it was windy and a bit cool, – she delivered, showed up, didn’t complaint about the weather and did a outstanding job. Horses she knows - she is from Alberta after all.
For the 'HIRED HAND' we hired an actual working buckaroo (Western U.S. a cowboy, especially a broncobuster.) LANE THEISEN, who has done stunt work in film before, he did a great job here, and his brother (also a buckaroo) came along and worked as our horse wrangler.
The Cowboy in front of the Camera is  GEORGE PORTER, who mostly works on his ranch in southern Alberta, living in a house that is ‘off the grid’ – occasionally we manage to bribe him off the ranch to work on a film.
