A message from Dr. David Barnard, president and vice-chancellor of the University of Manitoba

Friends and colleagues, it is my pleasure and honour to offer congratulations to all those involved with the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR) on the day of the grand celebration of its opening here in Winnipeg.

The University of Manitoba has been an active partner and integral part of the dialogue leading to the opening of the CMHR, with contributions from faculty, staff and students across many disciplines.
