Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on Friday that Winnipeg’s iconic former Hudson’s Bay building will get a new life after sitting vacant for two years. Gifted to the Southern Chiefs’ Organization (SCO), the site will be transformed to include almost 300 affordable housing units, a museum, an art gallery, restaurants, and a health centre. The government has pledged $65 million toward the redevelopment project. “Today’s announcement is reconciliation in action,” said Trudeau.
