Opinion: Former MP proud of newly discovered Metis heritage

Opinion: Former MP proud of newly discovered Metis heritage

Most Canadians know where their family came from and have a pretty good understanding of their heritage and family history. As Canada is a young country (as far as the nations of the world are concerned) citizens of Canada represent a mosaic of the worlds cultures.

A cousin approached me at the funeral saying she had interesting news about our family tree. She also had documents to confirm what she was about to reveal. I had grown up knowing that my grandfather died in a car-train crash in Edmonton. He was 27 and left my grandmother with two little girls: my aunt Marlene and my mother Gloria, who was just seven months old when her father was killed.
