A Bit Of Election Trivia - Winnipeg North
Included in the scissor snipping was Amber Trails, a small but affluent community that was carefully excluded to the north of Leila just before the Winnipeg North riding takes a turn up Ritchie Street.
The way I see it, Winnipeg North lost out on the Transit building on Main Street and the two strip malls between Inkster and Leila. Then over at McPhillips they were not given Northgate Plaza or Garden City Shopping Center. And they missed out on the car dealerships on Main and McPhillips between Inkster and Leila. Then the Seven Oaks Hospital was cut out of the riding at the intersection of Leila and Mcphillips to add insult to injury.
I really don't know who decided on the borders of Winnpeg North, and how the property got divided. But it sure struck me as funny when I took a closer look at the area called Winnipeg North. Even the shape of Winnipeg North's riding looks chopped at compared to the shape of Kildonan / St Paul and Selkirk / Interlake. I don't know, but it sure struck me as odd that all of the affluent areas were not included in Winnpeg North.
