After being randomly attacked on my way to work one morning THE FIRST time and being beaten into a month-long coma, I have to say the racism, poverty, and corruption has EVERYTHING to do with the general attitude of the residents of killapeg. You can't walk through a hospital parking lot to ICU without being attacked. You most CERTAINLY can't walk anywhere AFTER dark, and daytime can also be pretty sketchy. You have a VERY good chance of being killed by a stray-shot, fire arms-prohibition notwithstanding. The occupational government is obviously only looking out for it's own employees and the jails and prisons are populated by Aboriginals and people of color. There is also a very good reason WHY the LERA and Complaints against the RCMP Commission exist. Winnipeg should be THE poster-child for a concealed-carry law in Canada. You have a better chance of being murdered in Winnipeg than you do winning the lottery and a better chance of having some public employee try and cover it up or paint you with a criminal brush than try to help you. Enter the City of Winnipeg at your own risk. Winnipeg has THE highest murder-rate, sexual-assault-rate, child-poverty rate, and car-theft rate in the whole COUNTRY. Enjoy your stay.

Winnipeg inst a very bad place, ive lived here my whole life and the only part I might avoid is the north end of the city. Overall, ive been to many bars, theaters, parks, etc and have had no problems what so ever. The worst thing to happen to me was being robbed while working as a clerk at a gas station, and overall that wasnt very traumatic. I feel very safe in Winnipeg and enjoy the many activities in and around the city.

The violent crime in downtown WInnipeg is kept under wraps due to the fact that the media organizations and police are handcuffed by groups that do not allow any anti Indian sentiment or reporting.. The Winnipeg FRee Press is an example of a media organization that will not report on murders or violence committed by Indians in Winnipeg. They have a board member that is bought and paid for by the Indian elite. AS an example of the problem non Indian car drivers make sure they put an Indian dream catcher on their dash so when the thieves encounter the parked car they will bypass it as they think it is one of their own. Encounters with these people are unavoidable as the downtown is like a reservation. It is a do not go area for the suburb dwellers.BE very careful.

It is very important to avoid the North End in particular, it is by far the worst part and the majority of the crime occurs in that area.
Elmwood & West End are both good to avoid as well, although they are not as bad as the North End. It would still not be smart to go there during the night.
People often add Osbourne Village to these lists, but in reality it is not bad at all and shouldn't be avoided, except around bar closing time. It's unlikely you run into much more trouble than some drunk asking for change (don't give any bums change, they have ample homeless shelters and places to stay, it's going immediately to liquor or drugs).

The city gets a very bad reputation due to the North End in particular, but there are actually many neighbourhoods which are very nice and have little to no crime at all.

I was waiting at a bus stop on main street close to the liquor mart today, a native gang with red colors were at the same stop, a black gang came by and exclaimed "Are your bloods!?, Are you bloods!?". I though he was talking to me. I heard another member from the black gang say "STAB HIM STAB HIM!", I ran across the street and kept running as far as I could. I don't know what happened to the native gang, but I heard screaming as I was running. Fuck this city. Winnipeg is hell. something has to be done, pretty sure I have ptsd from this shit. Somebody may have been murdered, and if I didn't run it could have been me. WINNIPEG IS SHIT. ANYBODY WHO READS THIS. DO NOT LIVE HERE ITS A HELL HOLE AND ONLY GETTING WORSE.

Like any city, Winnipeg has areas to avoid being alone at night (North End, Elmwood, Downtown, Osborne). That being said, I have never felt unsafe during the day in Winnipeg. Take your earbuds out, walk with confidence and you'll be fine.
