AGM 2016

Thanks to the Winnipeg Transit Bus Driver of bus# 102 route #15 (time 3:57 PM) enroute for making an abrupt stop and letting a victim that was fleeing her abusive partner on board no question asked. You’re kindness does not go unnoticed. It’s men like you that make a difference in not being a bystander and taking action on ending violence against women! Picture is of our Board President Catherine Dunn presenting Winnipeg Bus Mr. Allan Kauk with a gift.
Thank you Meegwetch Nahanni for an outstanding Keynote speech and your inspirational personal message to women struggling with abuse and to our Ikwe staff that work very hard in silence to perform an essential service to the women and children of Manitoba/Canada who walk through the doors of Ikwe.
