Hilarious.. I'm showing this to my wife (a montrealer who has visited Winnipeg a few times now). I think she was impressed with the indoor plumbing and cable tv at my brother's place in St-Vital.. maybe M. Gelin hasn't got his electricity hooked up yet.

That's bull.. my wife's a nurse in Quebec and they said all she has to do is pass an exam in order to work in Manitoba, you just need to show your diploma and write the CRNE (Cdn Registered Nurses Exam). Only in Ontario do you require a bachelor's degree. Unless 'completing equivalencies' means 'writing an exam', she's gettting screwed.
