Too funny ChuckNorris. I always said you could live, shop, work, marry... without ever having to leave Transcona....EVER!

Even though I don't live in Transcona, I am very close to it, that I will leave Winnipeg to go shop there...kidding.

You might not look all that bad in spandex, even for your age, hell by the time you finish shopping you could even end up married out there!

But the question really is: Is East Kildonan the in-bred cousin of Transcona?

Hey chucknorris1:

Ironically, I moved to Transcona from the Maples. I prefer Trans because it's quieter at night, but the quality of assault rifles they sell here pales in comparison to the Maples. Well, we all have to make our sacrifices.

A couple years ago there was a Transcona Student Association at the U of M. I guess they felt they were special enough to warrant being an official UMSU student group.

The wall in the men's washroom at the Pandora - The Rosetta Stone of East Winnipeg
Scoff all you want… but that wall has proven to be invaluable in deciphering ancient cultures.

Terms such as: Can you dig it, boogie down, and keep on truckin, were once incomprehensible. Thanks to indelible markers and the mens washroom at the Pandora, we have a much better understanding of the ancient ones from the 70’s.

Don't you have to belong to a support group if you've been to the pandora?

Here’s a well written and thoughtful article for the people who may not be familiar with everything that Transcona has to offer.

I think the only stereo types left with any truth are transcona has easy girls and lots of ukranians. There are those of us from Tcona though who aren't easy and managed to graduate high school without getting pregnant or an std.

St James is the other end of the city. Hell, when I lived in Tcona the only times I went to Polo were en route to Edmonton...

Transcona is the blue-collar community of Winnipeg. Transcona was it's own city from 1961 to 1972 when they became part of Winnipeg. They have a museum that is actually kinda fun to go check out. We take the trip once a year to drink at the local dives, see the run down woman and main street.

Transcona became most popular (especially for the jokes) with the old Buffalo Bills (now Tavern United) and The Oak (Bullwinkles, Safari, Rum Jungle, My Bar) at the Canad Inns. These night clubs were known for rowdy evenings and easy woman. Upon closing (2am) the club lots always offered many fights, guns and public fornication. Transconians are known for working hard and then not coming into work the day following payday. There are several good quiet pockets which people have since moved into due to rising cost of housing in the Kildonans. This has caused a gradual increase in Transcona's realestate.

Transcona remains predominantly blue-collar for two reasons. The railway does absorb a large amount of the work force and the location is at a distance that makes transportation to secondary education facilities more difficult. Transcona's educated population continues to gradually grow. I can't believe you are still reading this BS...:P

Years ago, before Winnipeg went Unicity, Transcona, was a seperate sub-burb like the rest of all the sub-burbs of Fort Garry, St. Vital, St. Boniface, St. James, and such.

Now that Winnipeg has gone Unicity for years, all of those sub-burbs comes all under the name of Winnipeg, so, Transcona is now considered Winnipeg, even tho it is probably still called Transcona.

"Was Transcona at one time a seperate place? "

Yes Transcona was, like the rest of them, until they all went Unicity, over 30 years ago, now it is just plain called, Winnipeg.

Probably much better this way, then having seperate entities.

Well kinda,....since they filled in the moat ( liability ) and removed the draw bridge... now Transconians are free to wander the planet and spread mayhem.... beyond just The Spike, Joe's |Garage and the Canadas Inn ( on the outskirts ) !
