Metis man charged for hunting without license

A Metis hunter licensed by the Manitoba M�tis Federation has been charged by the province for hunting without a license.

The Manitoba M�tis Federation says it has a right to regulate hunting among members. Canada's Supreme Court ruled that M�tis have constitutionally-protected rights as Native communities and urged governments to negotiate agreements.

Talks between Manitoba and the M�tis have broken down. The province says it will not recognize M�tis hunting cards.
