That is true. Winnipeg's biggest tourist draw happens to be Folklorama. This past weekend I went to our company's annual picnic. We brought a soccer ball to pass a bit of the time & a few kids wanted to play with us. These kids were white, Filipino, & east Indian (or another nearby country). And when us adults played earlier, some of those not born in Winnipeg were from places like Bulgaria, Paraguay, England, Italy, & China, not to mention that there was a french guy & possibly a Portuguese guy too, among others. Maybe next year if 1 of us crunches real extra-terrestrial data, we'll include a few Andromedans or something!

Well the subdivisions here all have trees but they are as new as the houses (but not as big as the houses - read little - as you can logically expect).

I'd have to get myself first - I started this off-topic thing LOL.

Sure didn't take long for it to reach its 1st million!
