It truly is a gem. Here's quite a different type of Canadian vista, but a gem in its own right.

There is a big city feel when standing at the intersection of Main and Portage seeing all the heavy traffic passing through the two main arteries in the city.

Winnipeg has great bones and a very strong sense of place. In many ways it feels more established than Toronto due to the proportion of older building stock. Toronto's building boom makes the city feel newer even though its not.

In fact, the general downtown population and development density here is higher than Montreal's. Next time you come I will take you around to neighbourhoods like Queen West, King West, College West, Bloor West, The Annex, Greektown, Chinatown, Corktown, the Beaches, Riverdale, Leslieville, etc... Plus, that would be a good excuse for another visit!
Yes I barely left the downtown core. Other than the airport I only went on an hour walk in the western nabes as far as Dufferin and drove your bike to the east in the middle of the night down Queen as far as Jones Ave and up to Bloor. I definitely prefer the eastern areas to the west as there is something more pure and rawly urban about them somehow. But I definitely love all those areas and wouldn't want to see them lost. I think it's a case of wanting to see more of something rather than less of another. I guess I'm just greedy.

Niagara Falls gets frequently lambasted for not being a 'proper' city, but it does have a great skyline. It could get a lot better if some of their projects see the light of day. There's a twin tower proposal of 229m each that's stale and another tower at 197m. All 3 would be hotels so they're tourism dependent. The current tallest is ~158m.

Winnipeg punches far above its weight in the beauty department. I don't think people in Manitoba recognize what a smart looking city they have. That museum is a gem. I'm so happy it got built despite so much hostility towards the project.
