Duff Roblin Honoured at Tribute Dinner on Tuesday

The province’s 14th premier will be honoured at the appropriately titled 2010 Duff Roblin Tribute Dinner on Tuesday.

Voted the Greatest Manitoban, Duff Roblin will have his legacy front and centre at the Fort Garry Hotel during a dinner hosted by the University of Winnipeg Foundation

Roblin’s accomplishments are extensive, but he is perhaps most well known for being instrumental in the creation of the Red River Floodway, which received the nickname of “Duff’s Ditch.”

Proceeds from the evening will go towards the Duff Roblin Scholars Fund in support of the Graduate Student Fellowships in Aboriginal Governance at the University of Winnipeg.

Roblin passed away on May 30 of this year at the age of 92.

To purchase tickets to the dinner, call (204) 789-1409.
