Every year I photograph Mr. Andrew Swan and his family. Mr. Swan is the MLS for Minto in Winnipeg, the Minister of Justice and Attorney General. It’s been great to watch his girls grow over the years, and I often see him at different functions I photograph. Every year we choose a different location, but stay in his riding. This year the photo was in Chief Grizzly Bear Park. I had no idea of such a park, as I drive on Sherbrook street many
times! Winnipeg names everything after someone famous, but I’ve never heard of this particular Chief… His name mean’s “bear’s oil” and he was a chief negotiator for the 1831 and 1832.
Here is more information on the park, and a few photos I took… http://winnipeg.ca/cao/media/news/nr_2013/nr_20130730.stm#1
The family photo will appear on the 2014 calendar for the public.
