WRONG NUM­BER

Winnipeg Sun - - COMMENT -

An ar­ti­cle in your pa­per wrongly stated that at­ten­dance at the Cana­dian Mu­seum for Hu­man Rights had de­clined. In fact, the num­ber of vis­i­tors to the Mu­seum in the first half of fis­cal year 2017-18 (April through Septem­ber) in­creased by 2% from the same pe­riod the year be­fore (178,752 from 174,674). In the third sum­mer since we opened our doors, 70% of vis­i­tors were from out­side Win­nipeg (and 65% from out­side Man­i­toba). The Mu­seum is proud to con­trib­ute to the grow­ing suc­cess of Win­nipeg and Man­i­toba as tourism des­ti­na­tions. We are pleased to wel­come Cana­di­ans, in­ter­na­tional vis­i­tors and travel me­dia from across the coun­try and around the world.
