One great city
How many Canadian cities, let alone those with fewer than a million people, could offer what Winnipeg did in just this past week?
We’ve had an outstanding NHL team deliver a playoff win to an audience of 15,000 fans inside and up to 10,000 fans outside the Bell-MTS Centre, twice.
Jennifer Jones’ women’s curling team won their 26th straight game, including the world championship recently.
At the same time, the Winnipeg Comedy Festival sold out a performance of Roseanne Barr; we had the stunning Canadian debut of Angel Blue, an international opera star, in La Traviata; two Winnipeg restaurants made the Canadian Top
100 list; the Winnipeg based, internationally renowned Experimental Lakes Area celebrated the beginning of its 50th year of freshwater research; people continued to make the Canadian Museum for Human Rights a destination visit; and plans for the Winnipeg Art Gallery to exhibit the world’s most comprehensive collection of Inuit art continue to forge ahead... and that’s a short list. I challenge Free Press readers to add to this list.
