Some Winnipeg Pics
Canadian Museum For Human Rights and CN Rail main line.
Snowmobiles on the Red River. This is rare to see. As far as I could determine it is illegal to ride off road vehicles within Winnipeg city limits, this includes snowmobiles.
Hardcore Christmas decorations on an apartment balcony.
River skating trails.

History of Ambulances in Winnipeg
Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service (WFPS) provides Fire and EMS services to the City of Winnipeg, Manitoba. It operates from 27 Fire stations, 2 stand-alone Ambulance stations, and 3 administration offices across the city. WFPS has two equally important divisions: The Winnipeg Fire Department (WFD) and Winnipeg Emergency Medical Services (WEMS), using a centralized dispatch system.
In 1882, the City of Winnipeg established the Winnipeg Fire Department, followed by the Winnipeg Ambulance Department in 1974. Prior to 1974, ambulance services were provided by local private ambulance companies. In 1983 the Winnipeg Fire Department introduced the use of first responders to start assisting the Winnipeg Ambulance Department on medical calls. As of 2000, both departments amalgamated to form the Emergency Response Service of Winnipeg, which was later renamed as the Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service.

An elevator with spunk
300 Assiniboine is a 25 story apartment building in Winnipeg. It was completed in 2016. It is a high end residential building with all the amenities you could ask for. There is a huge lobby, a tenant lounge and gym to name a few.
Best of all the three elevators are fast.
