Winnipeg Premiere of Poor No More a great success!

poor no more film showingThe Carol Shields Auditorium was filled to capacity last night when CCPA-Manitoba hosted the Winnipeg premiere of Poor No More, a film featuring Mary Walsh.  The movie was followed by a short presentation with a local perspective from CCPA-MB director, Shauna MacKinnon and Prof. Gregg Olsen presented comparative data of 2 Nordic and 2 Anglo countries.  Both were very interesting and informative.  The evening ended with the presentation of the Joe Zuken Activist Award to Tom Simms, a long-time community activist who recently became the coordinator of the Premier's Advisory Council on Education, Poverty and Citizenship---  so everything fit together very well!  Another great event by CCPA-Manitoba!
