Thank you for showcasing Winnipeg. I live and teach in Steinbach, a 100 km away from Winnipeg, but I’m almost always there everyday to practice. It is a lovely city, a bit congested, especially in downtown which I’m sure you witnessed during day time… but true to your words, Winnipegers are all for walking and cycling as soon as weather permits. We have 7-8 months of snow. We so need to get out!
I’ve been in Canada for almost 11 years now. The strangest thing is I only began falling in love with Winnipeg only late last year, in spite the snow and bitter cold. The city simply feels so alive regardless the season. It’s totally different from where I live… I mean t-o-t-a-l-l-y lol.
Congratulations on your assessment.
Did you try the house salad dressing at Boon Burger? It is to die for! =)
Two weeks ago, I traveled to Winnipeg, the capital of Manitoba, for the first time. I knew little about Canada’s “Gateway to the West.” I’ve met a few people who grew up here. I remember a movie, My Winnipeg, that screened at the Vancouver Film Festival several years ago. That’s about it. Well, my first impression was very positive. (Winnipeg in December might have been a different story.) My Winnipeg top 10:
GREEN, LEAFY NEIGHBORHOODS Coming from the glorious summer gardens of Kitsilano, Vancouver, I was pleasantly surprised to find Winnipeg’s Armstrong’s Point just as verdant, with a canopy of soaring trees and lawns as plush as carpets.
