Owner, Choco­latier Con­stance Popp “One of the many books I’m read­ing now is TTim Hig­gins’ Just Com­mon Sense: The Life and Times of Ge­orge Tay­lor Richard­son, a wwell-re­searched bi­og­ra­phy of the re­cently de­ceased Richard­son, of Win­nipeg’s iconic Richard­son fam­ily. Hig­gins seam­lessly weaves Win­nipeg and Cana­dian his­tory to­gether with the Richard­son fam­ily’s in­cred­i­ble busi­ness achieve­ments over the last century, par­tic­u­larly dur­ing Ge­orge’s life­time. The book de­tails his fundrais­ing and char­ity work.... His legacy lives on in his chil­dren and grand­chil­dren. It’s an in­cred­i­ble read.”
