Winnipeg’s Ukrainian community is at a loss after a theft of an important item from their community’s building.

The Ukrainian Labour Temple (ULT) posted online that the building’s plaque was stolen from outside its building.

The building was awarded as a heritage destination in 2009, according to Emily Halldorson, Vice President of the Association of the United Ukrainian Canadian Winnipeg Branch of the Ukrainian Labour Temple.

The plaque designated the area as a National Historic Site in a ceremony in 2012.

Located on Pritchard Avenue, the organization says the plaque was taken sometime between Thursday night and Saturday morning.

ULT is asking for the safe return of the plaque, no questions asked.
