Why do most of the pics look so dead. THeir is like no one one the streets o_O
Two things, it's a Saturday and in the morning, around 9 o'clock. If it's not 9-5 mon-fri, there isnt a whole lot of people around. But that's changing.

Great pics! I've always admired Winnipeg for its historic architecture and appreciation of the arts. The streets do look quiet... too quiet for a Saturday morning. I hear the core is slowly improving... hopefully it will see better days in the not too distant future... ie. before my first visit.

The core is definitely improving and I wouldn't even say that it's slow anymore. The developments have finally started to stream in over the last couple of years and with the new riverside drive it's like the Exchange district went from being no man's land to being the hottest area in town overnight. Still, not many shovel's in the ground so to speak but the announcement's are solid.

Even West Broadway (notoriously always vying for the title of most violent neighbourhood in the country) has seen gentrification take hold recently. I foresee in the not too distant future that this will be 'The' area to be after the Exchange.

"Winnipeg has more people on its streets than most American cities."

Not for long. Our gas prices are going up! Yippeee. Maybe suburban Americans will realize how wrong it is to live in suburbia. I love it. America would be a much healthier country if 90 percent of its population lived in cities vs. the current 10-15 percent.

The Peg looks real nice. Kind of like Milwaukee or St. Paul in this set.

Canada is such a great neighbor to have. Especially for us gays!
