At the beginning of May, Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) leadership and staff met with the Honourable Jeff Leal, MPP Peterborough and Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. The meeting took place in Kapuskasing and was an opportunity for Minister Leal to meet with Métis leaders in the area. Discussion revolved around opportunities to develop the agricultural sector in northern Ontario. One such opportunity is a potential livestock pilot in the Great Clay Belt.
