Capitalizing on provincial capital status: A novel strategy for Winnipeg
There are some provincial capitals in Canada where capital status really counts and really seems to benefit the city in question, as is perhaps the case in places like Victoria, Quebec City and Regina.

Winnipeg is clearly in the latter category, with no "perhaps" about it!
