Top 10 things about Winnipeg

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!
