Two foundational events in our city's history took place along what is now Waterfront Drive, but, sadly, these events are all but invisible to residents and visitors, according to Winnipeg Free Press. Other than a plaque and a walking tour, our city and provincial officials have consistently resisted recognizing these sites as signature cultural heritage attractions and waterfront Drive, at bottom, in October, 2011. Two hundred years ago, the Selkirk Settlers landed on the banks of the Red River, establishing the settlement that would become Winnipeg. Almost 100 years ago during the Winnipeg General Strike, a small patch of green called Victoria Park was the gathering place for thousands of workers demonstrating for human rights, fair wages, safe working conditions and a decent life for their families.
