    About Senator Murray Sinclair

    We are incredibly honoured to announce that Senator Murray Sinclair will join us as this year's keynote speaker. Senator (and former Justice) Murray Sinclair was the Chair of the Indian Residential Schools Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). He was the first Indigenous judge appointed in Manitoba, and is a current member of the Canadian Senate.

    His talk will come at an opportune time for our province, as we seek to understand how best to implement the TRC’s recommendations.

    Additional information about the gala

    Includes a delicious Indian buffet dinner. There will be a silent auction and raffle packages full of amazing gifts, services, tickets to arts events, getaways and more.

    The emcee for the evening will be Charlie Demers, author, comedian and regular on CBC Radio’s ‘The Debaters’.

    Tax receipts will be issued in early 2018 for a portion of the ticket price and 100% of any additional donations.

    Table reservations are available when 8 tickets are purchased in a single block. Full table reservations cannot be made online. Contact Dianne Novlan at 604-801-5121 x221 or ccpabc [at] policyalternatives [dot] ca.
