for Point Douglas
Richard Sanderson was born in Winnipeg and grew up in Fairford, Manitoba.
Over 35 years, Richard and his wife, Isabel, have fostered over 70 children, two of whom still reside at home. Richard worked in justice for over 20 years and currently owns Nipi Okemaw Bottled Water and Sanderson Funeral Home.
He is very outgoing, visits a lot in the community, and people are in and out of his office every day. His passion to help people in the community is great and freely given. He’s always volunteering and busy helping people, whether to give a needed ride or a meal or just a friendly ear. He’s an active counsellor, Elder, Minister, and a friend. He’s always seen talking, visiting, or listening to someone in the Point Douglas Area as he just shows up. He’s someone that needs no introduction or invitation.
He has lived and worked in the community since 1997 and still does. He’s honoured and humbled to be representing the Manitoba Liberal Party for the constituents of Point Douglas.
