Present Day

From the recent pictures of Main Street, it seems to be less occupied. Not a lot of people are walking the streets, and as buildings have gotten taller and technologies, such as cars, have improved, the development has seemed to slow down.

The station has also gone through some renovations, including a $3 million dollar project in 2011 to repair the roof and increase energy efficiency. However, not as many people continue to use the station as people did before. At one point, Winnipeg was an important travel destination for all Canadians, even though it might not seem like it now.
