A locally created mural is was unveiled recently at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR). The mural, titled Everybody has the Right, is made up of 168 canvas tiles individually created by students from all 77 schools in the Winnipeg School Division. Together, the tiles, inspired by lessons the students have learned and experienced regarding human rights, make an 8-foot by 12-foot (2.4 by 3.7 metre) mural.
