What people are saying:

Hello! I’ve even heard of you over here in Oxford, England…I used to live in Winnipeg, and my friend Pamela sent me your ‘100 real reasons to love Winnipeg’. I like all these reasons, but relate particularly to your reasons 51 and 52, because I’m Scottish and definitely think you can be generous and parsimonious all in one – that’s what the whole Scottish nation is like! Thank you for your list – it has made my day, because I too love Winnipeg. - Marjory Szurko, Librarian, Oriel College, Oxford
