  • The Urban Issue: Addressing violent crime

    It’s a tradition here at The Uniter for us to release a special themed issue as our last weekly edition of the publishing year. The Urban Issue, as we call it, is an opportunity for us to look at social, political and street-level issues that are impacting Winnipeg as a whole: as a city, as a community, as a place, as people.

    With spring on the way, many Manitobans are beginning to think about their gardening plans, and the city’s greenhouses have them covered.

    Bre Kelly’s favourite drink to make at home for herself is an espresso martini. Minus the alcohol.

  • Mending against ending

    Whether it’s a gradual depreciation, an aesthetic blemish or a catastrophic meltdown, wear and tear is a natural part of most things’ lifecycle.

  • How the Village was won

    Where young people congregate, they will also create. The rule has proven itself many times in many cities over the years.

  • True crime is still true life

    A cacophony of sirens blares from rescue ve- hicles as they whip past a traffic clog. Drivers tense up and look around. What happened? Is it serious? Did someone die?

  • Behind the bar

    The bands, Roman Clarke and Courtney Fox begin loading in at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 1 at the West End Cultural Centre (WECC). They are greeted by the people working the lights and sound, who started an hour earlier.

  • ‘Avoidable harm’

  • Reinventing the ring

    Attending your first professional wrestling match is a bit like attending a Rocky Horror Picture Show screening.

    You have to see it live. You can never fully anticipate it. And, often, it’s best to go in blind.

  • Signs of the times

    Like most cities, Winnipeg’s buildings tell a story about its past. Well, maybe it’s not a single story with a clearly defined arc. Perhaps, more accurately, Winnipeg’s buildings are a scattershot anthology of short stories. They range from the old and beautifully preserved to the rundown and decrepit, from quaint character neighbourhoods to rows of identical strip malls, like so many cubes of Lego, devoid of any personality whatsoever.

  • Uniter 30 outtakes

    Tabulating the votes for the Uniter 30 every year is an emotional rollercoaster. Some years it’s fun. Others, boring. Depending on my mood, it’s a task I either look forward to or dread. No part of the psychological experience oscillates more wildly than the joke votes.
