A weekend in Winnipeg: what to do, where to stay, what to eat?

We're going to be in Winnipeg for a weekend soon. Most likely aiming to spend some time at the Museum for Human Rights, but otherwise … what's awesome in Winnipeg? Would we need to rent a car, or is the airport easy to get to from downtown hotels?

Driving the Coquihalla in winter

In two weeks I need to drive from Vancouver to Vernon, I've rented a car, as I don't have all season tires, it's cheaper to rent, plus if a car ends up in a ditch it won't be mine. My question is what site should I check for current road conditions aside from Drive BC? Also, how do I determine whether to go north through Kamloops or South through Kelowna? Who has the best real time updates? [more inside]
