You realize it's 24th out of 209 Canadian cities? And of the "large" cities it is number 4 on the list, ahead of Montreal, Quebec, Vancouver and Toronto. I think they ranked it pretty high, the only reason they dropped in ranking is likely because some small and medium sized cities in Ontario and Quebec made their way up a little.
err, correction (When filtering sizes on the list it it doesn't keep the overall ranking sorted), so Quebec is actually higher, but Winnipeg is still ranked #4 among large cities, behind 1) Ottawa 2) Quebec and 3) Calgary.
