Winnipeg, like any other major city has sections to avoid. In Winnipeg you should avoid the downtown area up to and including the North End. Past the North End no problem. There are pockets in St. Boniface that aren't all that safe.

The person who said to avoid Winnipeg at all costs is out to lunch, Winnipeg is nowhere near as bad as he claims it is.

The person who said 500 million "natives" (as he put it) where killed... there were only 200 thousand living in Canada when the English and French first came to Canada.

Police are in pockets of hells angels bloods and crips. Have had officers pull me over for committing no crimes demanding either a bribe or to be taken in under false charges. One police officer stole a watch right off my wrist at a check stop at 2 AM and once I got out of my vehicle to ask him why he stole my watch, he arrested me for assaulting an officer.

Gangs, drugs, corrupt police offiers. AVOID THIS CITY!=

WPS and the provincial government are to blame for the state of this city.

Acknowledging that poverty and crime are rampant among First Nations is neither demand of an apology nor is it racist. In fact, it's the first step to addressing the issue.

After killing over five hundred million natives, and continued treatment of genocide. Natives have to beg for forgiveness? The monsters don’t even know they are monsters how sad.

Winnipeg is an urban reserve , I am not all racist but come on they want us to respect them and accept them but go out and rob innocent people , liquor stores . Our government is to blame as they have given them way too power and entitlement by handing out thousands of dollars when all of of us had nothing to do with their land disputes . The only racist are the aboriginals , think about it , they are robbing innocent businesses being bold about it as though canada laws do not apply to them. Stealing , car thefts , home invasions. We are not the racist they are retaliating against the white for a issue non of us had nothing to do with. Oh but let's reverse Here , liquor store owner is aboriginal and white people as they call us ( racist) stole from them God forbid they'd kill you but innocent store owners are forced to step back and let these thugs do what they want .
Think long and hard Winnipeg especially Those who work hard , start standing up to them store owners defend yourselves . Government Stop giving them power and entitlement . Canada is a country for all nationalities .

Avoid at all costs. Use the perimeter hwy to go around the city. Do not stop for fuel. Do not stop for food. I was born there. I lived there for 40 years. Not moving earlier was the biggest mistake of my life.

Avoid the North End and Point Douglas LIKE THE PLAGUE - Dangerous 3rd world drug-user's and gangster's paradise. It is so unbelievably dangerous and people get assaulted in broad daylight. If you are non-Native this is NOT somewhere you want to be!!

If you want to experience zombie apocalypse in a 3rd world country then visit Methpeg, Murdertoba.
