Winnipeg is one unfair city

Don't blame this cutie pie -- she just wants to learn to swim.

So Winnipeggers think that because they pay for swimming pools, rural people shouldn't be allowed to take swimming lessons? I think it's tax dollars that pay for swimming pools.

As a resident of rural Manitoba, I feel this is just another reason not to visit your unfair city. Every time I come into "the city," as we call it, my credit card comes back smoking hot. I take the opportunity to shop, eat in restaurants, maybe see a movie.

All those businesses that pay taxes? I support them. I wonder if Winnipeggers would be able to afford those recreational programs without our support?

Come spring, all you city folk are going to use my highways and come out to hike on my hiking trails and camp in my campgrounds. I'm still going to welcome you with open arms.
