An unexpected bit of news surfaced a few months ago—Christ the King Catholic Church will soon be converted into a performing arts theatre. Fantastic news for the area.

Here’s a peek at St. Malo, Manitoba. For me, the highlight of this Francophone community located about 60 km south of Winnipeg, was the slightly off-putting St. Malo Shrine and Grotto. A bad acid trip waiting to happen, I imagine the grotto has left behind a trail of traumatized young churchgoers in its path since it was built, over 100 years ago.

It’s impossible for me to recall the number of times I’ve passed right by Emerson, Manitoba. Thirty? Forty? Fifty? All I know is that the number is pretty high. And each time I’ve driven that stretch of road on my way to Grand Forks, Fargo, Minneapolis or Chicago, I had not once stopped to take a look at Emerson—until this past fall. While the town may not have lived up to its early promise, it is not without its charms, including a handful of handsome historic buildings. I’m glad I finally took a look!

Here are the first few photos from the third and final Manitoba road trip I did in the summer/fall of 2015. The day got off to a great start with a beautiful, misty sunrise as I headed towards La Salle, through the RM of MacDonald.

In other news, today marks exactly eight years of Winnipeg Love Hate; it was started on February 29—leap year—2008. Thanks for your continued support over the years!

With a nice mix of historic buildings (like the Waldron Block and Land Titles Building), kitch (Choy’s Restaurant and Tommy the Turtle), agricultural buildings (Paterson Grain Elevator), Boissevain is one of the grain small towns in Manitoba. If that doesn’t entice you to visit, then perhaps its proximity to the International Peace Garden will. Finally, I’d be remiss if I did not mention what may well be the world’s only drive-up pay phone, located on the town’s downtown strip.

Started off my second dusk-to-dawn Manitoba road trip with another stop in Carberry. I’m two for two with hitting nice light here. Last time I got a gorgeous sunset, and this time I got an equally pretty sunrise.

Here’s a look at Downtown Carrbery, Manbitoba. Despite a modest population of less than 1,700 people, the town boasts one of the most impressive Downtown strips in the province (dare I say only Winnipeg and Brandon can top it). With its decent stock of grand historic buildings, Carberry is definitely worth a visit.
