Contemplations

Wayne Helgason & Linda Ross sharing a laugh with Actor, Adam Beach, at The Tsawout First Nation Gala to rebuild their Longhouse.

Actor, Adam Beach, attended the Gala for the fundraiser and gave an inspirational talk to the attendees. Wayne Helgason, an active advocate for the rights of the Aboriginal peoples in Canada had known Adam when he was a youth.

Linda knew that Adam was a big supporter of adequate, safe and affordable Housing for Aboriginal peoples both off and on reserve.

Adam offered to help with advocacy and possibly lending his name to fundraising efforts for various projects. We are grateful to Adam and look forward to a long and fruitful relationship.

University of Manitoba Statement of Apology and Reconciliation

Statement Of Apology As a graduate of the University of Manitoba and the mother of an Aboriginal young man, this apology has a profound impact on me and my family. I am very proud of my Alma Mater for taking responsibility for the role they played in this dark part of our history in Manitoba.
