I'm almost starting to wish I had finished my Urban Planning program; I think pushing the potential here in Winnipeg would be a very fun and fulfilling career.
Agreed.

Unfortunately, I'm starting to realize that there are only roughly 100 people in this city who think in these progressive terms, leaving roughly 674,900 people who don't.
