The geographic center of North America and the center of Canada, Winnipeg is cold in the winter and hot in the summer. It is without doubt the most stable city in the country and quite removed from other populated areas. People that live here love it. If they move away they always speak favorably about "The Peg." This town has everything - shopping, schools, culture, recreation and yes, the cold. One local described its weather, affectionately of course, as "Nine months of winter and three months of road repair." But no matter what you say about "Winterpeg" it is a very special big town with 100,000 lakes starting just outside the city.
