After the historic Supreme Court decision in its favour the Manitoba Métis Federation has established a blue-ribbon committee to provide advice in anticipation of claims settlements.

Today the MMF introduced its Land Claims Strategic Investment Committee -- former prime minister Paul Martin, Hartley Richardson, Sandy Riley, Harvey Secter and Dr. Eric Newell.

The committee will advise on the best way to set up a legacy fund, as well as for future business and development opportunities.

The MMF says the legacy fund will support the aspirations of the Métis people for generations to come.
