(L-R) Métis National Council (MNC) President Clément
Chartier, MNO Honourary Senator Reta Gordon, and
former Canadian Prime Minister the Right Honourable
After many years of service on the PCMNO, this August Senator Reta Gordon retired as a PCMNO Senator and became an Honourary Senator, but she has not slowed down at all!
On October 26, 2016, Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Honourary Senator Reta Gordon attended a gathering in Ottawa at the Rideau Club―a social club for Canada’s political and business elite. The event was held by the Canadian Chamber of Commerce to explore the role of business in reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples.
Also in attendance was Métis National Council (MNC) President Clément Chartier, and former Canadian Prime Minister the Right Honourable Paul Martin. Honourary Senator Gordon had the opportunity to speak with both President Chartier and former Prime Minister Martin.
At the beginning of November, Honourary Senator Gordon was also invited to a gala hosted by Norway’s Ambassador to Canada, Her Excellency Anne Kari Ovind, at the Canadian Museum of History. In attendance were Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit of Norway, who had expressed an interest in meeting Indigenous representatives from Canada.
