I’m passionate about a lot of topics and Winnipeg, my adopted city, is one of them. This blog comes from a desire to actively engage in local discourse.
Winnipeg inspires me. Looking at this city’s past, present, and future – I always feel hopeful. Winnipeg seems to be in a perpetual state of if. There are always bigger and better things on the horizon if we can just get there. Often shortsightedness and our notorious stinginess bring us to never fully realizing our potential.
For a host of reasons, Winnipeg is unassuming and frankly insecure. Once you start to buy into the disparagement, its easy to lose sight of all the perks. From Canadian culture, major Canadian historical events and figures, to intense local sports pride and a surprisingly varied foodie scene. I want this to be a place for Winnipeg to get credit for what it is and what it has.
Winnipeg matters. Winnipeg is relevant. Winnipeg is here.
