Live in the News Café: Raised by entrepreneurial legends

  • Print

The Manitoba business landscape would look a lot different if it weren't for Albert Cohen and Sir Clifford Sifton.

One offspring from each of the soon-to-be inducted Manitoba Business Hall of Fame members, James Cohen and Graeme Sifton, will stop by the Winnipeg Free Press News Café today at 1:30 p.m. to talk about growing up in the households of entrepreneurial legends.

Cohen was the founder of Gendis Inc. while Sifton was a longtime MP and owner of the Manitoba Free Press.

The first six inductees into the hall of fame, which is spearheaded by Junior Achievement Manitoba, also include James Armstrong Richardson Sr., Muriel Richardson, Izzy Asper and Samuel Bronfman.

The news café is at 237 McDermot Ave.

The event will be livestreamed here.

Note: Incorrect information appeared during the live stream. Graeme Sifton is the great-grandson of Sir Clifford Sifton, not the son. Our apologies for the error.
