The University of Winnipeg Foundation held a tribute dinner to honor Duff Roblin earlier this week. The proceeds from the event will enhance the Duff Roblin Scholars Endowment Fund, which honours his commitment to education. Former politician and U of W President Lloyd Axworthy shares why they gathered to celebrate the former Manitoba Premier.



Roblin, who held an honorary degree from the University of Winnipeg, was repected by Axworthy and he explains how the university is connected to Roblin's values.



The goal Tuesday evening, was to add to the Duff Roblin Scholars Fund, putting it over the $700,000 mark.
