Local history and urban thoughts from a West End Winnipegger
Interesting Retro '90s look, though, with the dated graphics and layout.The current issues page is particularly interesting. Even when it was last updated in 2004, it was still full of woefully outdated lines, such as "Eaton's managed to bail itself out without taxpayers' assistance" (not exactly!) and "Winnipeg will host the 1999 Pan American Games". Lillian Thomas' web site is past due for retirement, too: http://www.winnipeg.ca/council/thomas/cnclabot.htm
BTW, if you want to see something really strange, check out Coun. Harvey Smith's web page. On it, he describes himself as "a seven-day adherent to casual Fridays" with a beard "so long you expect to see the remains of a meal or a small bird in it".
looks like you've given them a bit of a wake-up call. when i tried the link i was informed that it was no longer on the city of winnipeg website.
Hey, you're right it is down. Ah, too bad !!!
@ view - Ha ! That's gotta be hacked or some ex employee getting back at him !"Smith, now 66, can't remember his birth parents' names" http://winnipeg.ca/council/daniel_mcintyre.stm
