I am seriously considering ditching cable but I need some help/advice...

Right now I am spending about $100 a month on cable and internet. But I can pick up free wi-fi from the hotel I live next door to (it's not password protected and the signal is strong) and I barely watch TV as is.
So I am planning on cancelling both services (they are bundled). I have gone without cable before but I do want to purchase a set of "rabbit ears" so I can get local news, etc.
What's the difference between amplifed and passive indoor TV antennas?
Which is better for someone with a regular colour TV (not HDTV) living in a downtown urban area with lots of tall buildings?
Also does anyone have any recommendations (links would be great) of "rabbit ears" that peform particularly well? (I don't want to spend alot)
If it matters, I am in Winnipeg, Canada.
thanks in advance.
