Sentence about Meti land[edit]

All I know about the Manitoba Act is what I read on Wikipedia (to misquote Will Rogers). Despite that I have tried to clean up this article a bit but my knowledge limits what I can do. There are two sentences that both relate to the Meti land provisions of the act that seem to be in slight conflict. Which is correct? How should they be merged? The section after my edits and moves says, "In a victory for the Métis, the act guaranteed that they would receive title for the lands they already farmed and 1,400,000 acres (5,700 km2) of farmland for the use of their children. The act also set aside land for the Metis, with each family receiving scrip, a certificate, saying they owned 96 hectares of land, amount to a total of about 560,000 hectares (5,600 km2)." --Bruce Hall (talk) 05:25, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

Wikisource location[edit]

I have moved the location of the link to the Wikisource article to under the map since that seems to me to be a better location. I am not sure Wikipedia's rules are but it seems to me that since the right side is often the place for images and links to other parts on the Wikiverse that the link to Wikisources should go there. It is easier seen and does not clutter up the end of the article. --Bruce Hall (talk) 05:25, 20 March 2011 (UTC)
