    Additional information not included in the video: The People's Book Store The Peretz School And it's also notable that when this video was made there were three (for the first time ever) Jewish cabinet ministers in the Manitoba Govt.

    Excellent presentation. It brings back many memories. I was born in Winnipeg and lived there for 28 years. I recognize the names of many of the people mentioned in the film. Mazel Tov on a good sjob. Jerrold Katz
