The RM of Gimli has become a great Fair Trade success story in Manitoba in recent years. Joann King (RM of Gimli) explains how Gimli managed to become the first official Fair Trade Town in the province, garnering support of the public and many businesses, as well as the council. Paul Cuthbert (Superintendent of the Evergreen School Division) then describes the student-initiated Fair Trade and sustainable development achievements in the division. Lisa Zolinski (The Fresh Carrot) speaks as one of the business owners in Gimli who have embraced and championed Fair Trade in the town, so much so that last year her store was honoured with a national Canadian Fair Trade Award in Toronto.
