Putting the Human Rights Museum would be like putting a diamond ring n a pig's snout. Read the topix blogs on this city below to see why! For one thing, it is probably the most inhositable city, the unfriendliest, the coldest (Both wheather wise and people wise); J.J. Harper, racism, first city to criminalize squeegee kids, first to have panhandling by-law, vagrancy by-law. etc etc etc..repressing the porest of the poor...Calgary, Edmonton, even Toronto or Ottawa, but Winnipeg!!??? Insanity.

A human rights museum in Winterpeg Murdertoba is less than humerous -- or ironic --indeed! Wouldn't it be more thoughtful to put it in a city with a much better reputation on the topic than Winnypig the murder capital of Canada, where there is more child poverty per capital than anywhere?

Who cares what Montrealers think? Seriously, you would think they were Torontonians for all their self-important, arrogant thinking.
Maybe they are just jealous, I mean, at least in Winnipeg people support the arts. That's what people from Quebec are ALWAYS telling me. Quebec is very over-rated. They are to be pitied, really.....so many women looking like particularly bad Mila Mulroneys in drag (post extensive plastic surgery of course) Ugh. No grace or class.:)

Hey, Billy boy, learn to spell. From Transcona or the North End? What's that? What's that?
Uneducated types drag us all down. Maybe some types shouldn't breed like rabbits, so those of us who are respectable Winnipeggers don't have to pay for those who can't or won't raise their brats.

To cold and to boring? Hey this is the north embrace it.-22F it doesnt take long for a back yard rink or a pond to be redy for you or your kids to skate in that, then the next day ital be mebe 0 or even 10. I have found with winnipeg its really cold only for short times then its just a normal brisk day. People give it a bad rap but When I put another layer on I find its night life and site seeing just as fun as other places.

Montreal is possibly my favourite city in Canada. Outside of Montreal many people say that the people in Montreal are ignorant and make no attempt to be helpful with tourists etc.Others have told me that they are unimpressed with the Securite, who are supposedly abusive etc, etc. Mostly I hear things from people who have been there for a couple of days during a rainy period. Winnipeg is cold but come when it is only cool, September, October - no heat/humidity no famous mosquitoes.We all bring ourselves with us on holiday. If it is our nature to find fault we will. If we plan and are going with the intention of having a good time we usually do.

Winnipeg is home to many Jewish people, many Ukranians, many Mennonites etc - many groups of people who left their own lands to escape persecution. This land was not always kind to them either but they knew the difference between that and an opportunity. They had to be really tough to stick it out. It has never been a place for the faint of heart but it is a fitting place for a Human Rights Museum.If people from other places are too soft, scared or whatever it is to come here. Just sit at home and pray for a better world.The rest of us will take this opportunity.

I would like to say that apology is owed to people who post far and wide. The interesting thing is that on a very few select incidents he actually says something other than hillbilly yodel. In those rare moments I think kindly of him.Might, or might not, share the opinion but I appreciate it.
Otherwise, like many others I am sure, I just see a yada yada and move along.
