Winnipeg crowned Slurpee capital of the world

Wow - there's something to be proud of. The article seems to indicate that more Slurpees are consumed in Winnipeg than any other city in the world. While
400,000 slurpees a month is a lot for a city of 650,000 people, I would be inclined to think it may be the per capita leader, not the overall leader by volume. I'm kind of amazed the stat is public, but then, what stat isn't?

Winnipeg is home to some of the nicest people I have ever met. They don't live in "Friendly Manitoba" for nothing! Here's some information on the city and a couple of pictures of Winnipeg, and a nice shot of the Northern Lights.
