Not sure if this question is rhetorical but Edmonton and Winnipeg are pretty similar in this regard at least historically speaking and with lineage, hard knocks migration stories, and humble and earnest hard working beginnings that cause us to be the way we are.

Also inhabitated by people that come from regions in the world where people with power and influence are not assumed to always be acting in the public good.

But put a city like this in an economic depression/recession, and the same citizens know what to do.

Questioning is good, blind deference bad.

Places like Edmonton and Winnipeg are working class cities that understand the need to question a lot of things that don't get questioned much on this side of the pond.
