The Metis National Council says Sen. Lynn Beyak should consider resigning for reportedly claiming to be Metis because her parents adopted an Indigenous child.

David Chartrand, vice-president of the national council, called Beyak's comments insulting, racist and a total misrepresentation of Metis identity.

He is sending a letter to the upper chamber today to demand an immediate apology from the Ontario senator, who has not responded to a request for comment on the issue.
