I'll also take a look at some events coming up this week in Manitoba history, as featured on my daily blog This Was Manitoba. This includes a look back at hockey player and furniture retailer Nick Hill, Dunrea's Daniel Lavoie who went from St. B. to the Paris stage; and the Avenue Building which, despite two major fires and being closed for a decade, managed to hang in there and is now a mixed-use residential block.
Also, James Hope Howard of Slurpees and Murder and Winnipeg Internet Pundits joins me at mission control for the last time. We'll do a little reminiscing about WIPS which has its final episode this Wednesday after a three-year run !
