Manitoba Islamic Association Presents... Town Hall Meeting: 
Mobilizing Compassion: What we can do to help the Refugee crisis.
Who are they?
Why are Asylum Seekers here?
What can WE do to help Asylum Seekers?

Asylum Seeker: a person who has left their home country requesting sanctuary in another.
Women, men, children all crossing the border into Canadian cities and towns. Emerson, Manitoba is our local border crossing, this is where more than 200 asylum seekers to Canada have crossed. Crossing at night, walking for hours, trudging through snow, frigid farmers' fields, all with one goal in mind, to reach Canada.

Join us at the Grand Mosque for an evening of understanding. Hear from experts, grassroots leaders, and asylum seekers who have faced the unthinkable.
Learn what you can do to help!    Email

Hermetic Code Tours

Join Dr. Frank Albo, creator of The Hermetic Code, for a tour of decoding the famous symbols and architecture that make the building unique. Dr. Albo will uncover trails of occult clues concealed in the building’s architecture including hidden hieroglyphic inscriptions, numerological codes, and Freemasonic symbols so intelligently masked they had escaped historians and visitors for nearly a hundred years! 
Is it possible that the Legislative Building is really a conduit of magical power? 
Is the building’s location in the centre of North America a site for numinous earth energies? 
Come and find out for yourself! 
Please dress appropriately for the weather as the first 15 minutes of the tour is outside. 
Cameras are also allowed on the tours as well as a beverage and small snacks.
You must have valid photo ID on you as you MAY need to present it at the Security Desk.

April 3 to 9
Winnipeg Comedy Festival 

Tickets are on-sale and available online, along with the full festival schedule, at www.winnipegcomedyfestival.com

A stellar list of comedians are getting ready to descend on our city this spring, including Will Sasso, Gavin Crawford, Howie Miller, Nikki Payne, and many more! Festival organizers also believe that buying local is a good habit, and that includes entertainment, too.

‘Buy Local’ also means different things on different levels, according to Artistic Director Lara Rae: “We want to showcase fine local talent, so you’ll see local talent not only in the Indigenous-focused Winnipeg Show, but also peppered throughout the festival – including our much-loved galas.”

Tommy Chong, known for his many comedic film roles over the years, will host the Good Neighbours gala on April 7 at Pantages Playhouse Theatre.

Shazia Mirza will bring her hit stand-up show The Kardashians Made Me Do It to the West End Cultural Centre on April 9.
