I don't want de-amalgamation, but I often believe we'd be better off if it never happened.
With annexation of outlying areas, Winnipeg would gain huge swaths of land but relatively little population... it's not like Rosser and Tache would suddenly begin calling the shots if they were part of the city. It would be a nice way to nip serious sprawl in the bud.
