Gladys Cook accepted a bouquet of roses at the conclusion of the premiere of an Anglican Video production based on her life which premiered at Winnipeg’s IMAX Theatre April 5.
Ms. Cook, a residential schools survivor, has been honored many times for her work with people who have suffered abuse or from drug or alcohol addictions.
The video, entitled Topahdewin – The Gladys Cook Story, was produced by Anglican Video as part of the Anglican Church of Canada’s commitment to memorializing the stories of survivors of residential schools.
The IMAX theatre was filled to capacity for the premiere.
Ms. Cook attended with many friends and members of her family. Also attending were Bishop Donald Phillips of Rupert’s Land and Archbishop Terry Finlay of Toronto, the Primate’s special representative on residential schools.
