  1. Great website! I just want to thank you for all the work you've done. I love Winnipeg and I also see the potential downtown has to become even more of a thriving, lively place to live, work and play. Keep up the good work!

  2. Of all the Wpg blogs, this one is seriously excellent. Hopefully it won't fall by the wayside!

  3. Thanks ! I plan to keep it going for a long time. I have another dozen posts or so already in the works ! Just have to find a better mapping tool.

  4. New update to index - Sept 1, 2012. Now nearly 200 places in and around the downtown !
