Howard Pawley - 1934 - 2015
We join Manitobans in mourning the loss of former Premier Howard Pawley. Throughout his life, Howard fought for equality, social justice, and the rights of all people. His leadership and progressive values led to changes to Manitoba's labour code to ensure that workers are paid fairly, regardless of their gender, and the inclusion of sexual orientation to Manitoba's Human Rights Code. He was also the minister responsible for the creation of Manitoba Public Insurance in 1971, which continues to provide the lowest auto insurance rates in the country. Our thoughts are with his family and friends. Manitoba lost a true champion of social justice today.
