Bishop Grandin Boulevard and St. Vital are well-known names in Winnipeg.
The former is a major east-west thoroughfare that runs the length of southern end of the city.
The latter is a neighbourhood nearby.
But most Winnipeggers likely don’t know these places are named after Bishop Vital Grandin, a “pioneer bishop” who lobbied hard to establish residential schools.
For that reason, some are pushing to scrap his name from the city’s neighbourhoods.
But not all agree with that idea.
