Winnipeg police have laid several charges against a Steinbach man after stopping him for appearing suspicious on a bicycle with a female.
Officers in the area of St. Anne’s Road and Bishop Grandin Boulevard came across the pair at around 4:30 a.m. Friday. The man originally gave a false name, but was later identified as having an outstanding warrant.
Use your best Stefon voice and say it with me: Immersive sets are the hottest thing right now. There’s an Off-Broadway production of Sweeney Todd that takes place in a pie shop, and the Broadway production of Once had a functioning bar that was open to audience members before the show and during intermission (hint, hint, Royal MTC, for your production next year). So, when I heard that Winnipeg theatre vet Cory Wojcik was premiering an original play at Fools & Horses about working at a coffee shop, I was all for it.
NEEPAWA, Man. — A lot has changed in Canadian agriculture since 1977, but one thing that hasn’t is the rules that govern the transportation of livestock. In the last 40 years, not only have there been changes in how farm animals are transported, there has been more research into factors impacting their well-being, as well as an increased concern about their welfare. Since 2013, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency has been working on updating these rules and last December, the federal government released proposed changes to the Health of Animals Regulations. The proposed changes were open for comments until February 15.

I believe in theatre, and art, as a form of escapism. When I go to the theatre, I want to be entertained. I want to check my troubles at the door and forget about my life for a little while. So why on earth would I choose to go to a show about Donald Trump?
