The Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) High Land Waters Métis Council recently presented the Louis Riel Medal and the Medal of Batoche to three very deserving Métis veterans.
Veteran Bill Fraser of Trenton and Veteran Edward Dorian of Seeleys Bay were presented with the medals at the Council’s monthly meeting on March 14.
Veteran Thomas W. Thompson of Northbrook was presented with the medals on April 6 by Acting Council President Deidre Thompson.
All three veterans felt very honoured to receive these tokens of appreciation.
“It was an honor to be able to talk with these fine gentlemen and learn about their adventures,” said Acting President Thompson. “We are proud to have veterans within our region and are proud that they served for us.”
