James Teitsma was accliamed as the PC candidate for the provincial riding of Radisson. He is the Manitoba board member for a strange right-wing Christian group who's explicit purpose it to "bring a biblical perspective to our civil authorities."
The group is against lots of the stuff you would expect - same sex marriage, secular education, abortion and birth control - but also has lots to say about "Aboriginals" and even argues workers' compensation goes against God's word! :http://arpacanada.ca/issuesresearch/laboureconomics/1750-socialized-work...
I sure hope he doesn't win.
So I'm moving to Winnipeg this week to pursue a Masters degree in public administration. I know there are a couple Winnipeg-based Babblers and I was hoping I could get some advice on the city.
Where are the best places to eat and drink?
Can anyone recomend places to buy groceries and bank (I will be living near the university)?
How cold does it get (I'm from the Edmonton area, so I don't think Winnipeg will be much of a change in this department)?
Any other tps or comments would be great!
