December 2015 marks my fifth winter in Winnipeg. The first one was in 2011. The cold weather and quantity of snow troubled me! Winnipeg was a no man’s land in winter! The immigrant shelter “L’Accueil Francophone” introduced me to the African French Community. We celebrated Christmas together. Unfortunately we were not in the same boat. They found me too “European”. Painful reality check!
