Farewell to a Manitoba giant
I read with sadness today of the passing of Duff Roblin, the former Manitoba Premier who fought for the creation of the floodway that protect Winnipeg from the ravages of the Red River.
While he will be forever remembered in the province and across Canada as one of the ley figures in modern Canadian history, we at the history society remember him also as a great friend to history.
Mr. Roblin was a member of our Advisory Council, and he will be greatly missed. My condolences to his family and friends.
