Freebase

  1. Fisher

    Fisher is a former provincial electoral division in Manitoba, Canada. It was created for the 1920 provincial election, and eliminated with the 1969 election. The constituency was located in mid-northern Manitoba, in the Interlake region. There have long been suggestions that the election results for Fisher in the 1962 provincial election were rigged. New Democratic Party incumbent Peter Wagner was originally declared the winner, but this decision was overturned when a scrutineer from a remote polling station announced that a miscount had occurred.

In all, the non-profit has helped more than 300,000 families since 1990 by donating 58 houses across the country and in Germany and the United Kingdom.

The house has a fully stocked kitchen, multiple bedrooms, and a living room full of toys to make the family's hardest day somewhat easier. Whitfield said: If they're are sad and they want to cry, we're right there with them and we'll cry with them. Years after the Gross’ visit, the Fisher House is still making an impact on the family’s lives. Toni began volunteering. I just knew that I needed to give back and encourage others. I also knew that by giving back my spirit would be lifted.
