Today was a great day in St.Vital dedicating the new mural. This project is a Glenlawn Collegiate initiative, using public art to celebrate Indigenous cultures and is another step on the path to reconciliation.

I was pleased to join Jamie Moses, MLA for St. Vital, Tom Ethans of Take Pride Winnipeg!, Jeannie Whitebird, Mandy van Leuwen and a team of young artists & poets from Glenlawn Collegiate to transform the tunnel.

The pedestrian tunnel between the St. Vital Library and the YMCA / Glenlawn Collegiate : before the renovation, after the renovation and now after the mural's unveiling. A great day for public art, celebration of Indigenous cultures and reconciliation in St. Vital!
