Winnipeg's human rights museum gives peace a chance
The Canadian Museum for Human Rights' first temporary exhibit is all about peace.
The display will showcase Canada's war history, including its role in Afganistan, along with personal stories from Canadians about how they work for peace. The exhibit was originally developed by the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa.

Spokeswoman Maureen Fitzhenry said not everybody will agree with the perspectives, but the exhibit will be thought provoking.
"No one is trying to tell them how to think or what to think about the various actions and pursuit of peace, but what we're trying to get them to do is think," she said.
"Maybe they would see peace, or Canada's actions … in a little bit different way than they did before."
The CMHR opens to the public on Sept. 20.
Peace – The Exhibition will be on display in the museum’s Expressions Gallery, a space devoted to showcasing temporary exhibits.
