In researching for the final part of our 100 Reasons to Love Winnipeg for Winnipeg Men, I was reminded about the Canad Inns Winter Wonderland, which I must admit I haven’t visited in several years. Now that my daughter is six, though, I’ll be sure to take her to see those wondrous lights this year.

Do you suffer from migraines? Read through our health feature on how to live with migraines and what you can do to alleviate them. While you’re at it, flip to our feature on how the right bra can change your life, just by fitting you properly. You spend too much time wearing a bra every day for it not to treat you right.

It’s In You to Give

According to the Canadian Blood Services website, someone in Canada needs blood every minute. This holiday season, why not give in a way that could help save a life?


With the holiday season quickly approaching it’s time to think about what you’ll wear to holiday parties and what to serve guests at your own get-togethers. We cover all of that for you with recipes and drink suggestions, and a fashion feature with clothes from Girl Candy Shop.

Strapped for ideas on what to get your loved ones, friends, or even your boss? Our annual Wish List is packed with new and different ideas on what will make their holidays bright. Of course there are always other ways to brighten the lives of others. Consider volunteering to help with holiday hampers or to serve Christmas dinner at a local shelter. Small sacrifices of your time and effort can make a big difference in someone’s life.

This issue we’ve expanded our Winnipeg Living section to encompass what was previously Dreamspaces as well. On those pages you’ll find everything from realtor information to how to sleep better, what the best choice of roof is for your home, and even what kind of a difference energy efficient appliances can have on your wallet and your energy use.

Be safe this holiday season, Winnipeg. Reflect on the past year and gear yourself up for all the incredible things you want to accomplish in 2015. I wish you all health and happiness over the holidays and the coming year.
