winnipeg has popln of about 600k, it has a fair spread of facilities, good arts scene - live music etc,
my wife says shopping is rubbish!
property is reasonable, there is a bit of a violent crime issue, as there is everywhere.
Cost of living apart from houses is highish.
it looks pretty drab generally, (even compared to brum!)
Generally wages are low,
Schools are supposed to be ok, my daughter is in a private school, and its supposed to be a good one, but its not as good as the school she was at in england
it takes about an hour to drive to the lake, and provinical park with trails etc.
Winter is COLD - this year exceptionally so, we had about a dozen days warmer than -20 between december and march. Summer is several weeks in 30 degree territory.
If you prefer smaller place brandon is a couple of hours drive to the west, pop is about 60k.
