I bet that's exactly what that is. Right through pointe hebert too. Guess that would have solved the St B nimby problem

Why not? North Kildonan can be quite nice. Uneventful, but a very nice neighbourhood.

This is the only possible buyer. The realtor might as well flip the white pages to "Friesen" and just start calling people until it sells.

There are tons of successful empty-nesters in NK and ESP, seems like an ideal fit. That said, I'm an ESP/NK person and while not young nor old, never seriously considered leaving.

At my age, there are plenty in my neighbourhood who have no children and would love this.

Smart play, even if bold (which NK needs). I'm in favour.

Body found in RM of Tache end of October is that of missing grandmother Thelma Krull who disappeared in July 2015.

Ya, super sad. This one hits home for me. It's the area where I grew up, Valley Gardens. I went to all three schools and the community centre where she disappeared. 2 bad incidents that year with Cooper Nemeth in the same area.

FYI Superstore rolled started delivery here over the weekend. Pretty reasonable fees IMO – you can get it to your house in as little as an hour.

The need for a full scale grocery store downtown is next to gone. Sure it'd be nice, but not necessary – I'm sure we'll start to see some more small specialty stores popping up in the next few years as residents increase.

I'm with Rogers and seems the network has gotten worse since the MTS sale. Almost like they reconfigured towers or something. I don't know. I've heard this from numerous people. I've been with Rogers for a while. More recently I stayed with them as they offered NHL GameCentre for 'free' for the duration of your contract. That has now been dropped so no reason to stay with them.

Off topic for this thread. Maybe we move it elsewhere.
I believe Rogers and MTS built the 4G network together in MB, but did not do the same for LTE. I think Telus also got some of the infrastructure/spectrum from the MTS deal – not 100% sure on this though.

I had heard a few years ago that the ratio of mobile in MB was about 50% MTS, 30% Rogers, 10% Telus, 10% everything else. Telus got about 1/3 of MTS' mobile business, which would mean they're likely now about on par with Rogers – pretty good justification to make a stronger push here and upgrade infrastructure.
