About Winnipeg - Canada :
700.00 people lives in Winnipeg , the city started as a trading fort for furs between ethnic french , scots explores and the firts nation people .
the fort was called Fort Garry and there is still a litlle tiny bit of it standing downtown .
then a youg noble man from the UK , called "Selkirk" began a farming settlement .
the firts year nobody knew how cold it be for how long and they ran out of food and the traveld to a ford in the USA to survive .
the they had the problem of the rivers flooding at the time (all this was in the 1800`s)
there are 3 rivers that meet in the city , the Red , the Assnibone and the Serve , but the flooding makes the land around very rich and once the settlers adjusted to the new conditions the city grew .
Now they have aerospace & bus manufacturing , manny big truck companies , railway yards, the provinces goverment is based there and they still have a lot of agricultural buisness .

thank you Kelly with charing this with us and a big thank`s from Chimène for the great goodies with the letter  :)
