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!!

Little Detroit on the prairie.
If you want to experience zombie apocalypse in a 3rd world country then visit Methpeg, Murdertoba.
The last one to leave, just turn off the light.

Winnipeg is a great city centre of Canada. Manitoba has the highest native population in Canada. So you know there's a problem with racism. Most areas are safe during daytime. All areas are NOW seeing a Meth Addiction Crisis and it's only getting worse. Methheads are starting to use syringes as weapon's to rob people. My names Ryan.S from Lake St Martin First Nation but I lived in Winnipeg my whole life and wouldn't want to change cities. I'll leave my e mail address if you have any questions!!

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.

please help me i am planning for manitoba red river college how safe is that area?

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.
