  1. My father was an NFB Librarian and stored all the NFB films in hi office which was right next door to the house I grew up in Portage la Prairie. He once was Secretary to the South West NFB and had regular meetings at our house.
    We had the latest NFB film for every family gathering. And once, when the Paul Anka film came out, I invited all my girl friends over to watch it and we loved it. I miss the NFB and it’s proximity to my life. I borrowed some films from the Library to share with my kids but it wasn’t quite the same!
