Manitoba's Metis Federation says its people are being left out of an apology coming this week for aboriginal children who were taken from their homes and placed with non-aboriginal families. President David Chartrand says no one from the Manitoba government consulted with the Metis or formally invited him to the event, set for Thursday at the legislature. Chartrand says the Metis were left out of the residential school settlement process and it feels like the same thing is happening again. (Grand Chief David Harper, who represents northern First Nations, says he welcomes the upcoming apology but wants more. He says adoptees still need counselling and help finding their birth families.)
