The Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Veterans’ Council’s President Joseph Paquette and Sergeant-at-arms Rob Baskey were invited to attend the Take A Vet to Dinner event held in Orillia.

Paquette and Baskey were sponsored by City of Orillia Councillor Ralph Cipolla.

During the event, Baskey gave a short presentation on the MNO Veterans’ Council’s Vimy Ridge Project in 2017 followed by gifting Councillor Cipolla with a copy of Fighting For Canada Before There Was A Canada: Ontario Métis Veterans Pass the Torch, the MNO Veterans’ Council book.

It was a great evening! Baskey and Paquette were very grateful to have a venue provided to showcase the MNO Veterans’ Council’s plans and activities.
