Wayne Lucier, I live in Williams Lake and have resided there with my family well over 30 years. My family has been involved in the Métis movement both here and in my homeland Manitoba for many generations.

It took generations of pride to be where we are today and I want to ensure our Métis culture lasts longer than just today. I want my grandchildren and their grandchildren to read about the pride of our people. I want our history to be something they are proud of. I want them to know that it takes all the people, all our relations to create history and a few to suppress it.

My background work is Life-skills coach and Addictions work. I currently work for the Canadian Mental Health. I deal with the Homeless program in Williams Lake and 100 Mile House. My work has brought me to many communities in the province. My addictions work has brought me to the doors of families whose lives were ripped apart by drugs and alcohol. My work has brought me to homes sheltered by cardboard boxes. My work has prompted me to run for leadership as all too often leadership forgets the forgotten people. We need a change.

Show Host

In 1954, in Edmonton Alberta, Dale Rodney Haggerty was the fifth child Born, to parents John Haggerty, a Scottish immigrant and French Métis Mother, Georgina Villeneuve. The Haggerty’s moved their growing family to B.C. when Dale was just an infant and youngest at that time, his sister Teresa was born later in Vancouver where the family lived and worked most of their lives.

As President of the Society, Dale’s future hope and plans for the museum is to continue sharing the Métis culture as long as he is able and when he is ready to retire (which won’t be for a while yet), the museum will be placed safely in the hands of our future Métis generation who will continue to bring and present the Métis culture and history to all that would benefit and have an interest & now its time to reach to even more of our Aboriginal brother s & sisters across the world. Our very own internet talk radio show called 'Metis Voices Radio' every Friday night 8pm pst on station 2 . Dale is looking forward to your callins as he talks about Metis history and many other Metis programming.
