Some people from Edmonton just like to make this a topic of conversation for some reason (to make them feel better about themselves or whatever).
Winnipeg metro, about 760k
Edmonton metro, about 1.2k
Winnipeg City proper, about 710k
Edmonton City proper, about 850k
The larger difference is in the metro area. But when you compare the city by city populations, not much of a difference there. But really, the metro population is less important because they don`t pay city taxes like those living in the cities do.
