The definition of "Winnipeg":

We love to talk about things. We love to examine things. We love to look for the cheapest possible option. And we love to rally against change. Change of any kind.

We don't want anything new, modern, or state-of-the-art. Oh-unless $0.00 of our tax money is used, of course.

We do nothing but whine about complain about how every penny of tax money is spent. If it's going to make Winnipeg a more fun, exciting, desirable place to live, we're against it before even knowing what it is. Or without even understanding how it will benefit us.

We embrace our "inferiority complex". Edmonton? Ottawa? Calgary? Well.. they're all richer than us. They can afford things. We can't. They're superior to us, with all their well-to-do citizens. Here? It's Kraft Dinner nightly and just scraping by with each bi-weekly meager paycheque.

This is shitty Winnipeg- new, exciting, bold things don't happen here. Because they're not supposed to. We'll join the 21st century when we're good and ready- and not a moment sooner.

You should post that on newwinnipeg.com . A poster by the name of Northender will tell you how safe walking down Selkirk Av and McGregor St at 1:00 AM is. And appearantly we should all move to the North End, becuase it has hardly any crime, and no gangs, according to Northender..

Winnipeg sucks, theres nothing to do here, especially in winter when it gets blistering cold to the point, you feel like your limbs are gonna freeze and fall out. The nightscene ain't all that great, some bars are deader than others on a sat night which is something i don't understand, i've been to other cities like Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal and btw, Montreal is the best city when it comes to this subject, bar none, but back to Weinerpeg, somethings definitely lackin in the nightscene. Then again, theres other problems besides that, for example, no NHL team, shopping experience here is non existent compared to other cities, ugly depressing downtown, shitty roads, mosquitoes the size of vultures, high crime and high car thefts, this city is everything a city shouldn't be in other words, WINNIPEG SUCKS !!!!!

'The definition of "Winnipeg":'

An ugly city with dreadful winters not much to do and a bunch of petty, small minded people who've convinced themselves contrary to all evidence that they don't really live in a shithole.

Its f'n hilarious that people complain there is nothing to f'n do in winter and say its because the bars suck. Thats a big f'n problem in the Peg, too many of you think life is about being drunk and stoned. I play hockey and downhill ski in winter, I don't waste time money and my life on f'n beer, smokes and pot. If you're life sucks, its because you f'n let it suck. Doesn't f'n matter what f'n city you live in. Get an f'n life people.

Small minded is right. My dad was Scottish, and had worked in many places around the world. He was working in Toronto, but then was transferred to Winnipeg. No one cared where he had been before, or that he wasn't 'from the east' technically speaking...they couldn't get past the fact he had most recently been working in Toronto. Of course, they hated him even more because the rubes that stayed in Winnipeg had totally f'ed up a project they were working on and someone had to come in and show them how to do it right.

Most of the spending their is public sector, so no one cares if things go off the rails, but it was a private sector project and they had to try to meet timelines and budgets and discovered that they couldn't wipe their behinds.

Anyone with any ambition should get the heck out of there as soon as they are finished high school.

I don't agree with all of this. Sure it gets cold and downtown can have it's "ugly" scenes- but how many of you guys ever stop to soak in the beauty here. We have beautiful sunsets. We have beautiful sunrises. We have lakes and duck ponds and parks. I think if people stopped whining and complaining and just tried to make the best of being here, maybe they'd be able to find the beauty. It doesn't help comparing Winnipeg to other places. Yeah, other places are a lot more interesting, but at least I don't let it take away from my experience here.
As for the people- I have met countless amounts of very good people. Old women who help YOU bring your bags to your car. Managers that don't mind if you call in sick. Friends coming to your rescue when you ask for it.
I think it's childish to think so negatively about everyone and everything in Winnipeg. You haven't met everyone. You haven't seen everything. Give it another chance. Explore. Talk to people. Don't hate on Winnipeg for reasons you don't even try to fix.

Been to winnipeg 4 times, twice i found myself without my vehicle. I don't plan to return. People weren't very friendly but I guess u can find that anywhere. It is colder than cold there. Go to vancouver or montreal for a good time.
