    Welcome to Detroit North: Visit Winnipeg at Own Risk

    There's unclogging sewers, gutting chickens and cleaning up after elephants.

    And then there are really brutal jobs, like working for the Detroit tourism authority: Imagine trying to lure visitors to a town rich in culture and history, yet tainted with a bloody reputation for violence and crime.

    Winnipeg may never match Detroit's annual 300 murders or 10,000 assaults, but like the Motor City, it's fast becoming stained with the kind of reputation that scares visitors away.

    Today, a Calgary family remains at the centre of a national news story, of the kind that leaves tourism and marketing executives weeping into their glossy brochures.

    It started with a pool ball being smashed into a Calgary tourist's mouth, and has developed into a horrifying tale of uncontrolled crime, after the Calgarian's adult son was set on fire outside his Winnipeg home.

    "I asked the mayor, why are you allowing these people to take over your city?" said Calgarian Susan Sanderson, whose stepson is now recovering in a hotel from first-and-second degree burns to his legs and torso.

    "I told him, this has got to stop."

    The article doesn't mention the race of the gang members. I don't think there are many Negroes in Winnipeg. First Nations (Indians)?

    Yes, primarily Indians.

    I would say it might likely be Metis people (half European, half Indian). It has been confirmed in studies that mixing Caucasians with Mongoloids leads to insanity.

    Edit: I just checked the demographics, 1/6 people are not even from North America or Europe. About 42 000 are Metis. This is from 2006, so increase the immigrants and decrease the Europeans.

    Mixed blood doesn't necessarily make one Metis--I think most Indians have some "non-aboriginal" blood in them, and many are quite "pale". Or if you look at Six Nations, it's still evident that escaped slaves had taken refuge with them back in the late 1700s and early 1800s. Whatever the case, regardless of how they identify themselves, I don't see any distinction between the average Indian and Metis. I would be interested in knowing if the gang-bangers in Winnipeg do maintain a distinction between the two. I can't find anything to this effect.
