Winnipeg Poor Choice for National Museum?
"Canadians, particularly francophones, think Winnipeg is too cold, boring and far away, so they will probably view exhibits at the new $265-million Canadian Museum for Human Rights in the city online rather than in person, according to government research.
Ottawa is giving $100-million for construction and $22-million annually for operating costs of what will be the country's first national museum built outside of the National Capital Region.
Overall, the location appears to be such a hindrance that the department has been told most people will visit the museum only online."
