Capital city of Manitoba, Canada.

Seasons: Winter, harsh; Spring, floods; Summer, dry and tolerable; Fall, nothing fun happens.

Temperatures range from -50 to +30 degrees celcius

Ups: Folk Fest(Hippy gathering), lot's of weed, great bands, Slurpees(Slurpee capital), it's better than Regina.
Downs: Natives, mosquitos, murder capital of Canada, bad weather, bad roads, lot's of car theft.

Nicknames: the 'Peg, Winterpeg, Win-a-pig

Name origin: Winnipeg is Cree for Muddy Water, because it was founded on a spot where two rivers met, now called the Forks. The Forks is where the Assinboine River and the Red River meet.
Come to Winnipeg, smoke some weed, buy a Slurpee, get your car jacked by natives, throw a bike in the Red River and run to safety from the West Nile infected mosquitoes, then ask yourself, how can Regina be any worse?

Pretty big city in Manitoba, Canada. It gets unbelievably hot in the summer (yes, hot in Canada!) and deathly cold in the winter. Lots of rivers, and the cops find bodies in them alot. I can see why they named one the Red River... LOL. People can just tell when you're not from there, but thats not necessarily a bad thing. A very diverse city. It doesn't get the credit it deserves.

An up-and-coming Canadian city with about 660,000 people in the city proper and 710,000 in the metro. It spent a few decades on the decline, but has been showing a huge comeback in the past 5 years in economics, commerce, culture, politics, etc.
If I was going to live anywhere in Canada, I'd live in Winnipeg.

A strange, mid-size city in Canada (8th largest) known for extreme weather and very hard partying. The city was in decline from about 1975-2000 but is on the rebound due to lots of jobs, low cost of living, a thriving arts scene, and easy access to pot and coke. All Canadian bands worth mentioning are from Winnipeg. Apparently Homer Simpson is based on a character (Matt Groening's dad I think) who was from somewhere close to Winnipeg, hence all the references in The Simpsons. Some areas are notoriously unsafe, I believe its the murder, car theft, and assault capital of Canada, all because of the native population. I felt safer in the ghettos of L.A. and Chicago than Winnipeg's North End. If you want a weekend of good blow and cheap beer, Winnipeg is for you - but bring a gun. Oh, and DONT touch the hookers, you'll get swine flu.
