Haha, I wasn't necessarily meaning to bring that up again, but it is nice to see the suburban -> downtown trend working for head offices too.

That is part of the creative class concept that Richard Florida was talking about. People are starting families later but still working those well-paying jobs, so they're not satisfied or even demanding the family homes in the suburbs anymore. They want to be downtown. Post-baby boom, businesses had to move closer to those family homes. Now they have to move back downtown.

Even Thunder Bay is seeing this to a degree, with some companies that would have located offices in the suburbs a decade ago, choosing instead to locate in our downtown cores.

Manitobans can soon knock back Farmery
Brothers' farm grows new brew's makings
By: Geoff Kirbyson



MANITOBA is one step closer to having its first home-grown microbrewery.
Lawrence and Chris Warwaruk, owners of Luxalune Gastropub on Osborne Street, have launched their first beer into the Manitoba market.
Farmery, a premium lager with 5.0 per cent alcohol, hits liquor stores and vendors this week and next.
The brisker the sales, the more quickly the two brothers will move on getting plans for their estate brewery in Neepawa off the ground.
"We're on the path to bringing the brewery back home to Manitoba. Every pint that we sell brings us one step closer," said Chris Warwaruk, 40.
A number of local establishments have already agreed to stock Farmery, including Canad Inns and The Grove pub.

What do you mean? I just randomly selected two tiny one-horse town's as examples of places with small-town mentalities. I could have just as easily said Snowflake or San Clara.

FYI, you status says Winnipeg. How can you live in two places at once?

He's around..he's just been busy. He does some really cool stuff with disadvantaged people and I think he's just been caught up with that at the moment.

Sure would be nice for Winnipeg to have a WHL team right now. Would have ended up being real good timing to start a team this season.

Well, what do you know. Apparently time flies, it isn't 2011-12.
