    yes, you can travel here by boat. please encourage people to see ALL of the breathing river life that winnipeg takes for granted on a daily basis. for inspiration on river travel, check out websites from artists like swoon or the miss rockaway armada who incorporate performance art, music, graffiti, painting, etc into daily life.

    A very good point. We were referring to getting here by boat from faraway lands of course, but there are beautiful rivers and much to see once you are here.
