Manitoba 150

"For a century and a half, Manitoba has been the home of hope - a place where people from all over the world have come - to build lives that were free in a place of peace, security and prosperity."
From the Throne Speech, November 19, 2019, Second Session of the 42nd Legislative Assembly of the Province of Manitoba
