The shops on the second floor of the main mall building let you move instantly from India to China or a North American aboriginal art gallery to a toy store.

The area around the forks is in turmoil right now with preparations for the games. Eight stucco plasters working on one building eighteen labourers laying lawns in another and painters and carpenters dashing about in all directions. The major focus of the Pan American games will be around the Forks with its new baseball stadium and marvellous new band shell.
It is to be hoped that all the grandness of the games do not somehow infringe on the classy nature of Winnipeg's Forks.
