"Bones.--The excavation going on in the mound opposite the northern gate of Fort Garry developes the fact that the mound is an old Indian burial place. Large numbers of very large human bones, skulls, etc, have been unearthed, and carried off by curiosity seekers." - Manitoba Free Press, Oct. 16, 1875

"[T]he premier was casually asked whether there are plans to tear down the only building still standing on the historic city block.

The century-old Manitoba Club, symbolic home of the city's business and political elite.

The premier laughed."
