Moments after Manitoba Metis Federation president David Chartrand walked out of a last-ditch meeting Tuesday, MMF lawyers renewed preparations to take legal action against the government led by Premier Brian Pallister.
"We're going to find ourselves in a courtroom trying to resolve this," Chartrand told reporters after his brief (less than 20 minutes) meeting at the legislature with Crown Services Minister Cliff Cullen. "We'll leave it up to a judge who's right and who's wrong."
Chartrand speculated it would take about a week to file all the paperwork necessary to ask for a judicial review to quash Pallister's order to Manitoba Hydro in March to kill a 50-year, $67.5-million land entitlement deal with the MMF.
Chartrand said Cullen's refusal Tuesday to give any ground shows Pallister is king, and no cabinet minister has any authority.
