Sol Kanee Lecture Series on Peace and Justice

Sponsored by the Richardson Foundation, the Mauro Centre presents the Annual Sol Kanee Lecture Series featuring distinguished leaders in the field of peace and justice.

The lecture series is named in honour of a prominent Canadian citizen—Sol Kanee (1909 - 2007), who was devoted to the cause of peace and justice. Mr. Sol Kanee had an unparalleled record of service to Winnipeg, and was appointed an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1977. Read more about Sol Kanee
