Winnipeg busted out the red and white to celebrate Canada’s 145th birthday Sunday, and our photographers were on hand: at The Forks, the Legislature, Assiniboine Park and Osborne Village. Details on these photos and others in our full Canada Day slideshow: http://wfp.to/4qm
Hundreds of Winnipeggers turn their gaze skyward for a view of the Transit of Venus at Assiniboine Park yesterday. Miss seeing the black dot move across the face of the sun? Well, there’s always next…century. More on the rare event, which won’t be seen again until 2117: http://wfp.to/YaG

Think a little rain could keep kids away from the Teddy Bear’s Picnic? Not a chance. Thousands of people packed Assiniboine Park on Sunday for the annual fundraiser, and injured teddy bears got some much-needed TLC, including bandages, X-rays and new glasses for these beloved toys.
