The Metis Nation of Ontario General Assembly may run for five days...but the focus is clearly on one particular meeting Wednesday afternoon.

Metis leaders are scheduled to discuss the aftermath of a recent Supreme Court of Canada decision on Metis hunting and fishing rights.

The court essentially ruled current hunting and fishing regulations don't apply to Metis people.

The Ontario government and the Metis Nation of Ontario have been in discussions ever since, trying to establish new regulations they can both live with.

So far, no deal has been reached.

But Metis Nation President, Tony Belcourt, says with Metis leaders set to discuss the issue on Wednesday, they may opt to push ahead with new rules on their own.

He feels it would be a bad idea to leave the industry unregulated for very long, noting a 'free-for-all' may develop.
