Yes. I don't like this video. It seems to misrepresent the city in a number of ways (eg: only showing Manasan Drive), and almost feels... racist. I don't know...

Yeah, I was watching it, and when it said 'culturally diverse', I thought, 'You know, Thompson is really culturally diverse. A First Nations population of somewhere around half the city, with most other Canadian cultures represented. But you guys are showing a whole lot of white people'.

I know. I guess it just felt a little weird that they kept the Aboriginal people in the background saying nothing when they're such a large and important part of the community.

Also, I'm a little bothered that the prosperous economic future of Thompson is a result of Wal-Mart, Boston Pizza, and Scotiabank :/

'Life in ... Thompson isn't just a summer thing, it's a winter thing too.'

I was thinking it'd be pretty funny if they didn't mention the winter. Too bad they didn't mention 'it's a winter thing' eight months of the year.

Just what Thompson needs, a propaganda video.

How candy-coated. However, I did like the part where it showed a lady with a fe-mullet. Rock on, fe-mullet lady, rock on!
