Louis Riel Day at the BC Legislature Photos
On November 16, 2018, MNBC, representatives from your community and the provincial government gathered on the front lawn of the BC Parliament Building to honour Louis Riel and our Métis Nation.
We were joined by Minister Carol James as she proclaimed November 16th Louis Riel Day in the province of BC.
