Historic Sites of Manitoba: Andrew Mynarski Statue (Vimy Ridge Park, Winnipeg)

Located in Vimy Ridge Park in central Winnipeg, a bronze statue of war hero Andrew Charles Mynarski was unveiled on 12 June 2015. As a part of the official dedication ceremony the following day, attended by school children (including ones from Andrew Mynarski VC School) and dignitaries such as Premier Greg Selinger, the event was highlighted by a low-level flyover by Royal Canadian Air Force fighter jets. The project was led by Bill Zuk with the sculpture designed by local artist Charlie Johnston.
