  3. My dearest Wayne. I was so heart broken to hear the news of your passing. I had the honor of meeting you when my mom Linda Rauch worked with you many moons ago. You had the biggest heart and kindest sole and made me laugh for hours. I will never forget the day you let me come in the office while I was having contractions pregnant with my oldest because mom didn’t want me to be alone and she had a project she had to finish for you and even though I was freaking out, you kept me calm with your witty jokes and your crazy stories, they were the best, so many gut laughs. I will forever miss you and will never forget you.

    I had the great pleasure of working with Wayne at the Metis Settlements Appeal Tribunal. He had a wonderful way of making everyone here feel important and wiser for having spent time with him. Wayne led with his principles, keen desire to learn more about Metis communities and culture, and a deep respect for everyone around him.
    Wayne will be fondly remembered as the founding Chair of the Metis Settlements Existing Leases Land Access Panel.
