That's true, the average family income in Manitoba is considerably more than Minnesota or North Dakota. Low wage earners in Winnipeg make quite a bit more than low wage earners in Fargo, I know that for a fact. I would be hard-pressed to find an American state that has a higher family average income than Manitoba. Canada overall has a quite higher average income overall than the US.

And newflyer, the US is the more capitalist nation, so explain that away.
