Gimli Unveils New Fair Trade Town Sign

Gimli unveiled a new municipal sign today, welcoming visitors to the city of 6,000 residents, and to recognize the community's commitment to fair trade.

The Fair Trade Gimli Committee, including Lisa Zolinski, Zack Gross, Shania Sveinson attended, along with MLA Peter Bjornson, Deputy Mayor Peter Peiluck, and the principle of Gimli High School, Tyler Moran.

The community became Canada’s sixth Fair Trade Town on July 1, 2009. Since then, its fair trade committee, politicians, business, and local high school have been leaders within the movement in Canada.
