I don’t agree with this statement, however some of our fellow Canadians do.

Focus groups across Canada have been questioned on their thoughts on the Canadian Museum for Human Rights, which is slated to open it’s doors in Winnipeg in 2012.

The location of the museum is viewed negatively by French speaking focus groups in Monction, Quebec City and Montreal along with the visible minority focus group held in Montreal. Most common complaints are cold, boring, far and uninteresting.

Other places either were not very concerned about the location or did not raise location as an issue. These places include Vancouver, Calgary, Halifax, Toronto, Kitchener, Thunder Bay, Red Deer and Whitehorse.

Why are the French hating on Winnipeg?? Don’t we have one of the largest french speaking population in Western Canada?
