 MEMBERS’ STATEMENTS

 Robert and Sandy Shindleman

Mrs. Heather Stefanson (Tuxedo): It is my pleasure to honour the recipients of this year’s B’nai Brith Award of Merit, Robert and Sandy Shindleman. Both recipients are entrepreneurs and community leaders having found Shindico in 1975 which specializes in retail development.

Having grown up in Portage la Prairie, Sandy was the first to venture into business as a real estate agent for home and commercial properties in Winnipeg. It was at this stage that Sandy developed his tireless work ethic and where he employed his father’s key business practice of treating people well.

Robert joined Sandy at Shindico in 1984 after working with his father on their many enterprises that included a family farm. What makes Robert and Sandy especially deserving of this award is that they have both taken on an active role in sustainable community development. Specifically, the Shindlemans have ensured that their head office was built with energy efficiency in mind, having built their office with LEED principles. Also, among their many philanthropic initiatives, the Shindlemans have funded the Shindleman Aquatic Centre, Manitoba’s largest leisure and wave pool, in Sandy’s hometown of Portage la Prairie.

On November 21st, Robert and Sandy Shindleman will be honoured for their leadership in corporate development and in their philanthropic work. B’nai Brith, an organization that is dedicated to human rights advocacy, will host an event to celebrate their many achievements.

Mr. Speaker, I would like to take this opportunity to applaud Robert and Sandy Shindleman for their outstanding contribution to Manitoba and for being model citizens. Mazel tov to both of them.

Thank you very much, Mr. Speaker.
