eric-scofieldEric ScofieldIt is with great sadness that I report the passing of Eric Scofield. Eric passed away at approximately 10:00 pm on July 16, 2011.

Eric, the son of Senator Earl Scofield, served as Region 9 Councillor on the Provisional Council of the Métis Nation of Ontario and also served as Captain of the Hunt for Region 9.

Eric was a firm believer in Métis rights and worked hard to advance our cause. His efforts contributed significantly to the advancement of Métis rights in Ontario and across Canada. He was passionate about the land and loved to hunt and fish. These activities brought him to the Timmins area where he was able to get back to the land.

He will be sorely missed by his family and many friends.

Funeral arrangements have not yet been announced.
