Highway 1 has opened in both eastbound and westbound lanes from Headingley to the Saskatchewan border, after being closed due to icy conditions and a number of crashes, but many other roads remain closed.

"As soon as we fix one thing, boom, two to three things more break because this storm just wont let up."The storm system moved on from Winnipeg overnight, and so did crews.

The plots are well written, and sometimes you feel like you’ re twisting your brain into a knot, trying to figure out the paradoxes. But most importantly it’s kind-hearted and beautiful. No doubt 'Doctor Who' will remain a fan-favorite for many years to come.

"If there's a trail open, people shouldn't be travelling on it. The roads are closed for a reason. It is a priority to get Hydro out to those sites. We've been working with them to get them out there," he said.

"We really need people to stay home, especially in those areas that are the hardest hit."

Halayko said Manitoba drivers should consider packing a safety kit for their vehicles, so they're prepared in case of a similar situation in future, or any other kind of roadside emergency.

"You never know, are you going to have mechanical difficulties, or a wildlife collision, and it's 30 below? It's a very good reminder."

Blanket 30 km/h speed limit among trio of options to be considered by council committee .
City bureaucrats have prepared a suite of speed-reducing options that could see speed limits on all but Calgary’s busiest roads dropped to 30 km/h. However, some city councillors have reservations about the proposed reductions, saying there needs to be more evidence on the merit of blanket speed-limit reductions and equal emphasis on enforcement and education. “While I acknowledge that people pushing for the blanket change are very well-intentioned, I want to make sure that if council is going to spend time, money and resources on this that it actually gets us to the outcome we are all looking for,” said Coun. Jeromy Farkas, referring to increased safety.
