Winnipeg, We Live Here - What's Your Excuse?

Winnipeg, We Live Here - What's Your Excuse?

Pete Tessier and I have known each other for about 8 years now. We've both called Winnipeg home for well over ten years; nearly 20 in Pete's case. We did not grow up here which makes thing different. Pete is a west coast guy and I am an anglo-Quebecer. I have also lived in 5 time zones and have found an appreciation for every city I have lived in. Winnipeg isn't the quirkiest but close to it; it's not the best but close to it. It is the hardest to explain to people who are not from here. Which is why when this artwork that you currently see about appeared on an episode of the Simpsons, you got if you were from here. 

We have been talking about doing this epiosde for a while now. I thought we should do it sooner than later with Pete's fair and accurate Twitter rant about the city last week. https://twitter.com/Teddier/status/1029784308154855425 

Pete also made reference to an important book called Seven Fallen Feathers which you can purchase. https://houseofanansi.com/products/seven-fallen-feathers
