^ Weren't the MPI executive offices in the Eaton Place/Cityplace complex from the beginning, or close to it? Regardless of where the "official" head office was, the decision makers were always in Winnipeg. Much the same as with Wawanesa... their head office is a nice nod to the company's roots, but the company executives are not actually located there.

Here's what Wawanesa's head office in Wawanesa actually looks like... pretty good for a town of under 600!

Actually, the Sipiweske Museum is in in the far humbler 1903 Wawanesa Mutual Building across the street:

At one point there was talk of have having them move to Brandon, but then it was decided at the Government level that they could stay in the Administrative office at City Place.

External documents could be mailed to Brandon's head office and then sent back via IDM to Winnipeg.
