Your undisputed favourites

It’s The Uniter’s final issue of 2023, which can only mean one thing ... or 30 different things?

For those who are new to this, the Uniter 30 is our annual readers’ poll, in which Winnipeggers vote on their favourite people, places and events of 2023. This issue is dedicated entirely to the results of that poll. We’ve tallied the results, we’ve interviewed your favourites, and now they’re here to enjoy their bragging rights.

But wait, there’s fewer than 30 articles!

That’s right, confused reader! While we take votes in 30 different categories, some people won in multiple categories. In these instances, we’ve opted to just do one article covering all the categories, rather than subjecting your darling artists, business owners and achievers to multiple interviews with grimy, ink-stained newspaper people like us.

How come in some categories you interviewed the second or third-place winner?!

Take it easy there, old chum! Let’s not get angry. In some of these categories, the first-place winner wasn’t available for an interview. In others, the same people or places have won the category multiple years in a row, so we figured we’d give the coverage to someone new.

Aw, I didn’t get to vote!

You snooze, you lose! Be sure to keep an eye on (which you should always be checking regularly, anyway) for future polls, initiatives and news stories.
