I usually take the 160-161 bus to the University of Manitoba, but one morning I got on the wrong bus and had to get off the bus where Bison Drive meets Pembina Highway.
I was not looking forward to my long walk to the University as it was minus 40 that morning with the windchill. I started walking down Bison Drive when a taxi cab pulled up beside me and offered me a ride. I kindly declined, but he insisted it was free of charge since it was way too cold for anyone to be walking.
I forgot to ask for his name, but I want to sincerely thank him for the ride. He truly made my day. It’s people like this that remind me why I love Winnipeg so much.
