It's a nice enough cathedral and has been well maintained over the years, but it's way smaller than what you would expect to see. I find it surprising that Winnipeg never got a bigger, newer, grander one after the boom during the years leading up to WWI.


It's not huge, but it's a very nicely-designed building. Very Richardsonian.

No argument here. But I can't help wondering if a new cathedral had been built during Winnipeg's main boom years around 1910-1913 if we might have ended up with something on the epic scale of the Cathedral of St. Paul in St. Paul, MN... some of the most impressive buildings in Winnipeg date back to that era, so something along those lines, even if not quite as large, wouldn't have been out of the question.

Not the best mosque I've seen, but the domes are nice and shiny. Located in Markham.
