Another legend of Winnipeg’s business community dropped by the Free Press News Café on Friday.

John Buhler, who built an empire manufacturing agricultural equipment at Buhler Industries, spoke about his $60 million in donations, and plans to donate another $40 million.

He is one of five esteemed business leaders who will be inducted into Junior Achievement’s Manitoba Business Hall of Fame on May 22. The others are Lawrie Pollard (Pollard Banknote Ltd.), Jim Burns (Great-West Life), Arthur Mauro (Investors Group) and the late Robert Chipman (Megill-Stephenson).

Buhler’s wife, Bonnie, his partner in all of their philanthropic endeavors, joined the interview.

Mauro visited the News Café to talk about his career earlier this week. Interviews are in the works with Pollard and Burns as well as the Chipman family.

You can watch the interview above.
