I have a dozen+ reserves within an hour of me.

I might add that I am Métis and even carry my Métis card. At the border I was informed that even if I am a registered Métis person, I have ZERO rights other than being a Canadian citizen, you must be a full legal registered blood-line Indian to have exemptions, even though it says on the back of my card that I have the right to cross the 49th parallel unrestricted.
