Postcard From Winnipeg
- Balmy (by Winnipeg standards) 45 degree weather is making it hard for snowmobile courses to open this season.
- A councillor donated $3,000 from his own transportation budget to an inner-city program that loans bus fares to those who can't afford it.
- The city is grappling with why it broke records with its 2011 murder rate of 39 deaths, including 5 without suspects.
- Occupy Winnipeg (population: two tents and a yurt) lit a New Years fire to celebrate the holiday.
