Looks good! Cold, but active. Just curious, what is Winnipeg's reputation in Canada? I feel like it flies way under the radar compared to Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa...hell, I feel like I even hear more about Halifax.

quite possibly the most comprehensive Winnipeg photo tour I've seen.
The best I've seen in recent memory, anyway!
