St. James used to be a separate township... so did st. Boniface.
Headingly used to be part of Winnipeg until they got fed up with the taxes. Probably the best move they ever made. ;)

I was born at Grace Hospital and my birth certificate says "St. James-Assiniboia" nothing on there about Winnipeg.

All the small municipalities joined in 1971 under the Unicity act, forming what we know as Winnipeg, with St. Boniface joining 1 Jan '72. So if you were born prior to that year and were not born at the Children's hospital, odds are, you were not born in Winnipeg.
And to this day, who does consider Transcona a part of Winnipeg anyways??? :P
I remember as a kid bugging my cousins about being St. B trash, after all, Transcona was superiour to all the other municipalities...at least I thought so til we moved away.

Transcona is sort of like Alaska to the United States, We all know it's there but no one really talk's about it.

They are called pools.
There are so many because of a syndrome that runs rampant here called 'keeping up with the Jones'.
We can't all be lucky enough to have gravel pits Ootpik.

You can take the boy out of Transcona but you cant take Transcona out of the boy...........

and i have years of therapy to prove that!!!!!!!!

Seriously, as a kid it seemed a great place to grow up, just when i got older it realized it was too damn far from anything and had to leave lol. The amount of money i have saved on gas since then, but the loss is i am not a great long distance driver
