He is the man who set significant benchmarks for his ethnic community. Dr. Wiebe was the first Mennonite from Manitoba to qualify as a medical doctor and the first Mennonite to sit in the Legislative Assembly, He was also instrumental in the development of Winkler's Bethel Hospital and the Valley Rehabilitation Centre for children. Dr. Wiebe began his career as a teacher in a Mennonite village and enev though he was soon aware that teaching was not his true vocation he recognized that progressive education would equip Mennonites to live better lives in their adopted country. He helped to establish good schools in rural Manitoba and he encouraged parents and students to think beyond the restricted curriculum that had defined education in Russian Mennonite classrooms. In his day post-secondary education was not commonly undertaken by Mennonites. His support, both emotional and financial, launched many young men into careers in medicine, teaching, and other vocations. Always an innovator, Dr. Wiebe established new standards of public health and hygiene in his community as well as new standards of achievement. He devoted his life to serving his people. His commitment was absolute. For 53 years he was Winkler's beloved physician. 250 grams - ships lettermail. We welcome all reasonable offers on our books.

It will educate, stimulate interest in science, and assist field biologists and landscape managers. Protection is a major theme both at the start and at the end and there can be little doubt that conservation will be significantly promoted. Orchids were the first group of Canadian plants to be selected for monitoring of the general status of environment and biodiversity in Canada. This monitoring follows the ""Accord for the Protection of Species at Risk,"" an agreement between provincial/territorial and federal governments with the goal of preventing species in Canada from becoming extinct or extirpated because of human impact. The parties are committed to ""monitor, assess and report regularly on the status of all wild species."" What could be more useful to help with monitoring orchids in Manitoba?""
