A ceremonial opening was held for the 351-million-dollar Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg. It was the brain child of the late media mogul Izzy Asper and designed by architect Antoine Predock. Asper's daughter, Gail Asper, said it was "incredibly satisfying" to see her father's dream become a reality. (The museum touches on topics including the Holocaust, women's rights, the internment of Japanese-Canadians during the Second World War and Canada's treatment of aboriginals.)
