With the Humidex  at +38 C on Friday July 28, Winnipeg remains to be in a heat wave as yesterday's the Canadian 50th Games kicked off at the MTS Iceplex. On Saturday, two great Canadian leaders Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister have met Saturday morning to discuss their various opposing issues of health care and carbon reduction strategy as reported in Cbc's website entitled "Trudeau, Pallister shake hands ahead of meeting at Winnipeg hotel". Hopefully this meeting will not bring higher taxes for Winnipegers.
