It's no secret that Winnipeg is one of the most fantastic cities in the entire world. There's a reason I follow both the official City of Winnipeg Twitter account AND the account for the Winnipeg Mayor's Office. Winnipeg is a city like no other, and I want to make sure I'm keeping up to date with all of the exciting happenings in this amazing "Mexico City of the North."
Here are just a few of the interesting and entertaining tweets from the Winnipeg Mayor's Office since they started tweeting back in March of 2013.
Mayor Katz - "We are drawing people from around the world to visit, to do business, to conduct science…to watch the Jets!" #SOTC2013— Wpg Mayor's Office (@WpgMayorsOffice) March 8, 2013
Winnipeg will finally get to host the Canada Games in 2017, when the Summer Games come to Winnipeg. Athletes from around the great nation of Canada will gather to participate in traditional Winnipeg summertime activities, such as ice hockey, ice skating, ice fishing, snow-looking, and competitive freezing-to-death.
Despite being Manitoba's capital and the largest city in the province, Winnipeg still doesn't get any respect from the government of Manitoba. It's a damn shame.

Mayor encourages all to stand up against bulling...hateless event getting underway at Park Theatre pic.twitter.com/zotuLyOMKH— Wpg Mayor's Office (@WpgMayorsOffice) November 16, 2013
I very much agree on this point. I'm certainly against bulling in all its forms.
A warm welcome, even on a cold day. New gateway sign unveiled by Fort Garry Historical Society. pic.twitter.com/TEG8rSpUlN— Wpg Mayor's Office (@WpgMayorsOffice) December 13, 2013
Hahaha "Fort Garry" is the most Canadian thing in history.
I know I've talked about this tweet before, but jeeze. It's a great one.
It should be very clear to all of you now why Winnipeg's motto is Unum Cum Virtute Multorum, which I would translate into English if this wasn't a family blog.
Prediction: Like most things from Winnipeg, the Jets are big piles of garbage. Sharks win 5-2.
