Age undisclosed. Resides in Winnipeg, MB.

Mary’s been a friendly face for me to see around town since the start of the year. I don’t know her well, but she’s always kind to me and has a warm, welcoming presence.

She was born in Saskatchewan, but moved to Winnipeg when she was four. She loves Winnipeg.

No wonder she finds this type of thing happens to her often:

“Winnipeg… being somewhere and just starting to talk with somebody. Like There was a guy that got on the bus with his seeing eye dog and it’s this humongous thing, like it was part rottweiler and lab I guess. But it looked like a mastiff. And he put it under the chair and we started talking about the squirrels from the summer and everything. For me that’s a typical Winnipeg experience, where people just easily connect and talk with each other.”

This can be one of the nicest parts of living in Winnipeg. It can also be a bit intimidating, depending how you’re feeling that day.

But mostly people are nice and awesome, like Mary.
