Ontario city wants to secede, join Manitoba

For many, many years I’ve thought this made more sense – and (being from Winnipeg) have always heard from people I’ve spoken with in the region that they wanted to join Manitoba.  Here’s hoping something is finally done about it.


CBC News: Ontario city wants to secede, join Manitoba

When Ontario’s borders were set up way back, it’s my understanding they kind of grabbed the region from Manitoba, which had originally wanted its borders to be set further east.  But of course, the power-hungry Ontario (then Upper Canada) political establishment wouldn’t hear any of it.  Here’s hoping more reasoned heads prevail!
