'Winnipeg, Ontario?' City misidentified on CBS morning show

  • Print

Maybe, just maybe, the citizens of Winnipeg owe Toronto Mayor Rob Ford an apology. According to CBS News, the Manitoba capital is in fact situated in Ontario.

During a trade mission to Chicago earlier this week, Ford inspired a few guffaws for suggesting Winnipeg -- not Windsor, Ont. -- sits across the river from Detroit. That in turn led Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz to make a lighthearted offer of geographic advice.

In an ironic turn of events on Saturday, Katz appeared on CBS This Morning above a caption reading "Mayor Sam Katz: Winnipeg, Ontario."

The mayor, who was in New York City to attend meetings with credit-rating agencies, was supporting Winnipeg Transit driver Kris Doubledee, who jumped off his bus to give his shoes to a barefoot stranger.

Katz is expected back at City Hall on Monday. Ford remains in Ontario.
