The Forks shown above is located at the joining of two rivers in Winnipeg, the Red and Assiniboine rivers. It has long been a traditional meeting place–6,000 years–for locals and visitors alike. It was once an abandoned railyard. Now it’s a major tourist destination.
That’s re-purposing on a grand scale.
It is also home to the distinctive Canadian Museum for Human Rights, the only national museum located outside of Ottawa.
It’s a perfect image to introduce yet another province to our gradual national roll-out. We welcome Manitoba with our lenses, our eyes, our ears and our feet. Keep posted for all manner of coverage, informative, thought provoking and leaning toward the positive.

Manitoba’s famed prairie landscape, wide-open fields of wheat, frame dramatic sunsets as few places can. The sky is a screen to its uniform splendour.
The Wedge now covers five provinces. Stay-tuned for our continued rollout.
