REGIONAL MUNICIPALITY OF WOOD BUFFALO, CITY OF LETHBRIDGE, AB, July 13, 2021 /CNW/ – Willow Lake Métis Nation (WLMN) and Lethbridge Métis Local #2003 announced today they have entered into a memorandum of understanding.

This relationship is a true testament that the grassroots Métis People want to work together to progress the Métis People regardless of political affiliation as our culture knows no such boundaries.”
