Windy Winnipeg. I've never been there, Chris. Tell them to come to Ottawa instead.

Give them my condolences! Kidding...I've only driven thru. If they want a happening place with the world's best scenery, send them to beautiful British Columbia.

Thanks for the link. Well my parents are off to the races, and who knows with as much stuff as they want to do if they will even make it to Canada. I warned my Mom, a day in Iowa and 3 in Chicago ;-)

Ellis- the biggest ( in North America) mall is in Edmonton- it has an ice skating rink and a rollercoaster in it!

Oh, that's right, Mauvais.

I was in Winnipeg once in January interviewing programmers. I do not recommend it in winter - ever! I am sure the summertime is better.
