You think Winnipeg is bad? Im from Thompson Manitoba. Its a mining town around 800km north of Winnipeg. Highest crime rate per capita in Canada when I grew up there, although Prince Albert and Battleford seem to be giving it a run for the money these days. In Alberta now thank God.
I lived and worked in North Battleford, Sask for three months back in 2018, it's definitely a rough town that, at the time, had the distinction of being the most violent city in Canada, per capita. I'll never forget my first night there when I moved into the apartment a coworker was renting, I ordered a pizza and the delivery guy, a young Native fella, told me that "I shouldn't walk around here at night" after I told him that I just moved in. I knew what he meant but asked him why and he straight up said "Bro I'm Native but the kids around here are savage, they'll swarm you, bear spray you then beat you up just for fun." Fortunately I was working nights so didn't go out much, it was also winter time so too cold for the goons to hang out but once March rolled around and the weather warmed up, we'd see random guys walking around at 3am with chainsaws other odd things that they likely stole out of someone's garage.
I worked with a girl who grew up there and said it was a great place in the 80/90s, the landscape is nice as it's in a valley, but twenty years or so ago a bunch of riff raff from the nearby reserves moved in and it really went down hill. This is where that white farmer guy shot and killed that young Bouchie thug who was trespassing on his property, a coworker told me he probably meant to do it after dealing with their crap so much over the years. Saskatchewan folk have the most insane Native stories, I'm sure it's the same in Manitoba, the Prairies can be wild in that regard; literally Cowboys and Indians, YEE HAW!!!
