2018 CMU PAX Award Presentation to Steve Bell (video)
Acclaimed Winnipeg singer-songwriter Steve Bell received the 2018 CMU PAX Award on April 15, 2018.
Over the course of a 25 year solo career, Steve Bell has been sharing a message of love, hope and faith through songs, stories, and writings. He is a purveyor of truth and beauty and champion of kindness, on a focused mission to "encourage Christian faith and thoughtful living through artful word and song." He is a mentor to many, and an advocate of numerous meaningful causes.
In recent years, Bell has used his platform to advocate for the building of Freedom Road, a 27-kilometre road that would end a century of isolation for the people of Shoal Lake 40 First Nation. He has also been a strong voice urging the Canadian government to adopt Bill C-262, an act that would ensure that Canadian laws are in harmony with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
