Winnipeg...

Where two ancient waterways
Melt into each other
On their journey to the inland sea

At the place of their meeting...a meeting place
A gathering ground of early peoples
An arrival point for new beginnings

Multi-coloured roots run deep
In the richness of this place
A place to build a future

Winnipeg...

I am her...she is me
