Lipinski re-elected

the MNO

Gary Lipinski of Fort Frances was re-elected president of the Métis Nation of Ontario with an impressive 87.2 percent of the total vote.
He also had a majority of votes at every polling station—signifying a strong mandate from MNO citizens and communities across the province.
“I am honoured and humbled to receive this mandate,” said Lipinski.
“It is gratifying to know that MNO citizens—across the province—support the results and momentum we have achieved together over the last four years,” he added.
“I am anxious to keep this momentum going!”
The 2012 election saw a record number of MNO citizens participating at the regional and provincial levels.
With a total of 2,286 ballots cast across the province, this election had three times the amount of MNO citizens participating compared to the one in 2008.
All the executive positions on the Provisional Council of the Métis Nation of Ontario were contested during the election, as well as three regional councillor positions and the post-secondary student rep position.

“I am looking forward to working with the new PCMNO,” said Lipinski.
“We have a lot of work ahead of us, but I believe we are well-placed to make even more progress and history over the next four years,” he added.
