Brian Sinclair

Completed: 2020

This mural depicts a portrait of Indigenous man Brian Sinclair, who died in 2008 while waiting to be seen in emergency at Health Sciences Centre. Sinclair, with a treatable infection was killed by racism, and wasn’t discovered dead until 34 hours after his arrival. He was only 45 when he died. His death was a wake-up call for many Winnipegers and for the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority, who then planned to implement more recommendations, and take accountability for anti-racist policies in healthcare.
