It is a beatiful city in a beautiful natural setting; you can't take that away from Calgary.
Heh. Well, I lived in Winnipeg on and off for nearly 30 years, and believe me, that sign is very true. So there.

(The other side joke is that most people, even 'peggers, don't realize that much of the cross-border/mail-order type pharmacy activities were happening in Winnipeg at the time.)

Well, Manitoba's economy is growing quickly, and Winnipeg is third in highest economic growth only behind Calgary and Edmonton. So as for the sign, it will very soon be a thing of the past. Winnipeg will grow, prosper and give Calgary a decent run for it's money in the next decade
