Much as I dislike the idea, i applied for a few jobs in Winterpeg today.

Can't say the idea of living there makes me even remotely happy, though.

Oh COMMON

Northern Ontario is great, but Winnipeg is literally only 2 hours away from it. I'm a native Ontarian myself so I know what its like. Winnipeg is the small-town-big-city. Its a nice blend between urban modern and hometown tradition.

Not ONLY is the city nice, and you can get OUT of it in any direction in 20 min. or less (very important), but its even CLOSER to the mountains than N. Ont A day's drive will get you to the Blackhills, for example. :p

yup.

You almost NEED a dually in Winnipeg with all the obstacles the general road conditions present! (aka POTHOLES). I've had a lot of fun up in the Whiteshell on some of the old roads - and I've yet to go through Riding Mountain, and high qual. BEACHES are only an hour away... can't really beat it

EDIT: I should be getting a paycheque from Manitoba Tourism right now lol

I'm quite aware of what Manitoba has to offer...I've lived in the Whiteshell,(Pinawa) the Interlake,(Gimli), Brandon,and way up North in Leaf Rapids.

But you can still keep Winnipeg.
