On Weds., Sept. 9, Premier Brian Pallister announced the second session of the 42nd legislature will resume on Oct. 7 at 1:30 p.m.

I look forward to the delivery of the throne speech as it sets out the agenda of the government and allows the public to understand the initiatives that are being presented.  It is my hope that the legislature continues as close to normal as possible, while following COVID-19 guidelines appropriately.

Established in 2019, the Pearl McGonigal Award celebrates a lifetime of achievement of patrons of the Grace Hospital Foundation. This year the Grace Hospital Foundation is recognizing R.W. (Bob) Cunningham.

If, as Winston Churchill said “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give,” then Bob Cunningham has surely made an exemplary life out of giving back to his community.

Serving on the boards of countless foundations, charities, and institutions across Winnipeg, including the Better Business Bureau of Manitoba, Asper School of Business, the Health Sciences Centre Foundation, YMCA, and the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, itt is indisputable that Bob Cunningham has been a cornerstone of Winnipeg philanthropy.

Bob has been a supporter of the Grace Hospital Foundation ince its inception in 1991. A familiar face to the hospital and its board of directors, Bob has always been a reliable supporter. In 2016, his vision led to the creation of Tomorrow’s Grace Capital Campaign, which to this day is Grace Hospital Foundation’s greatest achievement.

There is no one more fitting to receive the 2020 Pearl McGonigal Award.
Congratulations Bob!

The award presentation will be broadcast live online on Sept.  30 at 7:30 p.m. We hope you will tune in to celebrate the special occasion with the Cunningham family and Grace Hospital.
