Here are three views, separated by forty years.

Friends of the… Public Safety Building?

Friends of the… Public Safety Building? | Winnipeg Internet Pundits | Scoop.it

We originally found out five years ago that a new airport terminal would be coming, we waited half a decade while the new airport terminal was built, we made preparations to move everything into the new airport terminal for its grand opening, and then finally — with a week or two left before the new terminal opened — we started freaking out about what to do with the old airport terminal.
