We need a new flag. There are a handful of bisons left.

More than a handful... but I agree, we need a new, more inclusive flag that celebrates the many cultures and traditions that make up Manitoba.

They'd probably put a pic of Riel on it 🙄

Who's "they"? 

And, maybe the founder of Manitoba should be on the flag? But, I would prefer not.

So for those of you in Winnipeg that have seen those mysterious NOW posters, it looks like we have an answer but I just googled and apparently there's nothing on this new station, why can't there be a  rebrand to a lite music station like 102.3 once was

A federal grand jury has indicted a former chief technical pilot at Boeing, alleging that he deliberately deceived safety regulators at the Federal Aviation Administration as the agency evaluated and certified the troubled 737 Max airplane.

The indictment charged Mark Forkner, 49, with six counts of fraud, accusing him of providing the FAA with "false, inaccurate and incomplete information" about a new automated flight control system on the 737 Max.

 

Robert Clifford, the lead attorney for many of the families of the people who were killed in the 737 Max crashes, calls the indictment of Forkner "a corporate whitewash." Clifford says the "corporate greed goes far beyond the chief pilot" at Boeing and he is urging the justice department to go further in its criminal investigation.

Quote

The Supreme Court of Canada has unanimously ruled that municipal snow removal activities are not immune from negligence and liability claims, a decision that could affect cities across the country.

The case at the centre of the decision is a lawsuit brought against the City of Nelson, B.C. by Taryn Joy Marchi, who injured her leg while climbing over a snowbank in 2015.

Marchi lost her initial suit but the B.C. Court of Appeal overturned the ruling and the city appealed to the Supreme Court.  

The key question the seven Supreme Court justices were tasked with deciding was the legal distinction between "core policy decisions" made by governments — which are immune from liability and negligence claims — and "operational decisions" that are taken while implementing policy, which are subject to liability claims.
