RIP Margaret Pidlaski

I was shocked to hear the news that Margaret died in an accident while vacationing in Peru. I've know Pidlaski for years as a strong supporter of newcomers. I first knew her as an ESL teacher and then she became the director of the program. She was always with a smile and very welcoming to newcomers. She made them feel at home and I feel she truly believed in our multiculturalism an diversity in Winnipeg and Canada.
The Immigrants here have lost a dear friend.  Our sympathy go out to her family and close friends who will feel the loss more personally.
