Assiniboine River, Winnipeg, Manitoba Originally uploaded by merlinprincesse

The city of Winnipeg has been supporting the Riverboat tours for sometime now however the Canadian Taxpayers Federations has now complained as they have lost nearly $44,000 for the last six years.

We are not left without water tours – Splash Dash Water Bus Services and Paddlewheel Riverboats both offer river tours. I’m skeptical on how long that will last.

I must say that I’ve never taken part in any historical tour here in Winnipeg. That is not to say I wouldn’t. I like the options there. If I put my mind to it though, I could get them all done in a year so I thought I would spread it out a bit. I better get on top of it!
