    In other municipal matters, city hall is proposing a donation of $15,000 in cash and about $5,000 in-kind to Aboriginal Peoples Television Network's production of Indigenous Day Live to be co-hosted in Shipyards Park.

    The live broadcast event is proposed to take place on Saturday June 22nd, simultaneously with Winnipeg's celebration and will feature the top names in First Nation's talent.
