Susan Thompson was interviewed by Tracy Koga at the Winnipeg Art Gallery and the interview was aired January 30th, 2017. This was a lovely conversation between Tracy and Susan that touched on many topics of interest to readers from this website.
Tracy mentioned that 2017 is the 25th anniversary since Susan was elected Mayor of the City of Winnipeg. We will be bringing more information to this website in celebration of this moment in history. As well, the conversation talked about establishing the leadership of women, the Inuit Art Centre and how Winnipeg has changed over the years.
Also, Susan raised a little known fact from the Flood of the Century that is important to remember. Throughout that crisis, Shaw TV provided a valuable public service by covering the daily press conferences and providing information that people needed to save their homes. We would like to thank Shaw TV, not just for this wonderful interview, but also for their service to the community, like throughout the Flood of the Century.
