Pequis was a Saulteaux chief, who moved from the Great Lakes area to Red Lake arriving in what is now southern Manitoba in the 1790s. In 1817 he signed the first treaty with Lord Selkirk, granting land along the Red River to the Selkirk settlers. In 1840 he was one of the early western First Nations converts to Christianity and was given the baptized name William King, he and his people had helped both the Selkirk settlers. However, by the 1850s he had become concerned at illegal settlement by European migrants on traditional lands, he was sometimes called "Cut Nose" since his nose had been injured in a fight in 1802. His name is commemorated in the name of Peguis First Nation, Winnipeg Route 17 known as the Chief Peguis Trail, many organizations, place names, institutions of Manitoba.

Winnipeg Route 62
Route 62 is a major north-south arterial route in Winnipeg, Manitoba that has eight different street names. The official route begins on Salter Street in the city's suburb of West Kildonan; as it passes southward over the CPR Winnipeg Rail Yards and past the West End, its name changes from Salter Street to Isabel Street, Balmoral Street, Colony Street, Memorial Boulevard, Osborne Street North, all in a space of less than two kilometres. It remains as Osborne Street North as it passes by the Manitoba Legislative Building, as Osborne Street as it crosses over the Assiniboine River at the Osborne Bridge, through Confusion Corner and into Fort Rouge; the route's name changes to Dunkirk Drive when it enters the suburb of St. Vital at the St. Vital Bridge over the Red River, again to Dakota Street when it crosses St. Mary's Road just north of St. Vital Centre; the route ends at the intersection of Dakota Street and Aldgate Road in the Dakota Crossing neighbourhood of south St. Vital. Route 62 is a major arterial route serving both the North End and St. Vital, forms the westernmost boundary of the downtown core.
Osborne Street between the Assiniboine and Red Rivers is a major shopping district in the area between Roslyn Road and Corydon Avenue, known as Osborne Village. From north to south
Perimeter Highway (Winnipeg)
Provincial Trunk Highways 100 and 101 form a beltway around the Canadian city of Winnipeg, Manitoba. The Perimeter is 90 km long, it is an alternate route around Winnipeg for through traffic, as there are no freeways through the city. The highway was built in 1955, to bypass city centre rush hour traffic; the northeast section was left unbuilt at the time, as PTH 59 had received significant upgrades, making the need for a northeast section less pressing. PTH 59 continued to serve as the de facto northeast leg of the Perimeter until the mid-1990s, when the remaining segments of the highway were completed; the highway now encircles Winnipeg. Most of the Perimeter is a four-lane divided expressway, with interchanges and at-grade intersections; the only two-lane section that remained was near the PTH 59N interchange. In September 2015, construction began on upgrading the current at-grade intersection at PTH 59 with a modified cloverleaf interchange. Once complete, the remainder of the two-lane Perimeter will be upgraded to divided highway.
Construction was expected to be complete by 2018. The southern segment of the Perimeter Highway is part of the Trans-Canada Highway as a Winnipeg bypass, designated as Highway 100; the northern segment is a provincial highway designated as PTH 101. The Perimeter Highway bridge across the Red River and roadway at Pembina Highway was constructed in 1958; the job was tendered to Peter Leitch Construction Ltd. at a cost of $188,670. In December 1957, Dominion Bridge was awarded the contract to supply the structural steel for the overpass. Exit numbering increases clockwise; this roadway is what was to be part of a two ring road system, with the outer Perimeter Highway, an inner ring. The inner ring was tabled in the 1960s and was slow to progress; the inner ring sometimes referred to as the inner city beltway, was to be the Chief Peguis Trail to the north, heading west to Route 96, circling to Route 165, from there to a point near Northern Blower on Route 37. Several years ago a group working with a councillor, worked to stop the loop from going into the Transcona area, had the roadway's land designated a natural prairie grass park.
From this point on Regent, the road was supposed to loop north back to Route 17. The current plan has had to move the eastern portion to Plessis Road. Plessis Road is not as suited to the required connection and space for intersections, but is the only remaining viable option. While construction of the east–west Bishop Grandin portion was done years ago, the northern portions have remained unlinked, with only the short portion between Route 52 and Lagimodière; this has provided an effective link over the Red River, but the short span of road leaves much of the north part of the city with difficult navigation choices on an east–west basis pushing major cross town traffic to use residential roads and regional arteries like Inkster, MacIvor and Springfield Roads. The city of Winnipeg completed the extension of Route 17 to Lagimodière Blvd in December 2011; this brings the inner ring road one step further to completion. The absence of a link between the intersection of Route 52 and Route 17 toward Route 90 makes east-west travel difficult, is an important link for the north part of town to significant areas like the Airport and Red River Community College, as well as the future CentrePort.
The land for these links is owned by the city and awaits the laying of roadway. These type of major traffic arteries are designed to carry crosstown traffic efficiently with fewer environmentally damaging starts and stops. Further these roadways are designed to move traffic away from direct contact with residential streets
Canada is a country in the northern part of North America. Its ten provinces and three territories extend from the Atlantic to the Pacific and northward into the Arctic Ocean, covering 9.98 million square kilometres, making it the world's second-largest country by total area. Canada's southern border with the United States is the world's longest bi-national land border, its capital is Ottawa, its three largest metropolitan areas are Toronto and Vancouver. As a whole, Canada is sparsely populated, the majority of its land area being dominated by forest and tundra, its population is urbanized, with over 80 percent of its inhabitants concentrated in large and medium-sized cities, many near the southern border. Canada's climate varies across its vast area, ranging from arctic weather in the north, to hot summers in the southern regions, with four distinct seasons. Various indigenous peoples have inhabited what is now Canada for thousands of years prior to European colonization. Beginning in the 16th century and French expeditions explored, settled, along the Atlantic coast.
As a consequence of various armed conflicts, France ceded nearly all of its colonies in North America in 1763. In 1867, with the union of three British North American colonies through Confederation, Canada was formed as a federal dominion of four provinces; this began an accretion of provinces and territories and a process of increasing autonomy from the United Kingdom. This widening autonomy was highlighted by the Statute of Westminster of 1931 and culminated in the Canada Act of 1982, which severed the vestiges of legal dependence on the British parliament. Canada is a parliamentary democracy and a constitutional monarchy in the Westminster tradition, with Elizabeth II as its queen and a prime minister who serves as the chair of the federal cabinet and head of government; the country is a realm within the Commonwealth of Nations, a member of the Francophonie and bilingual at the federal level. It ranks among the highest in international measurements of government transparency, civil liberties, quality of life, economic freedom, education.
It is one of the world's most ethnically diverse and multicultural nations, the product of large-scale immigration from many other countries. Canada's long and complex relationship with the United States has had a significant impact on its economy and culture. A developed country, Canada has the sixteenth-highest nominal per capita income globally as well as the twelfth-highest ranking in the Human Development Index, its advanced economy is the tenth-largest in the world, relying chiefly upon its abundant natural resources and well-developed international trade networks. Canada is part of several major international and intergovernmental institutions or groupings including the United Nations, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, the G7, the Group of Ten, the G20, the North American Free Trade Agreement and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum. While a variety of theories have been postulated for the etymological origins of Canada, the name is now accepted as coming from the St. Lawrence Iroquoian word kanata, meaning "village" or "settlement".
In 1535, indigenous inhabitants of the present-day Quebec City region used the word to direct French explorer Jacques Cartier to the village of Stadacona. Cartier used the word Canada to refer not only to that particular village but to the entire area subject to Donnacona. From the 16th to the early 18th century "Canada" referred to the part of New France that lay along the Saint Lawrence River. In 1791, the area became two British colonies called Upper Canada and Lower Canada collectively named the Canadas. Upon Confederation in 1867, Canada was adopted as the legal name for the new country at the London Conference, the word Dominion was conferred as the country's title. By the 1950s, the term Dominion of Canada was no longer used by the United Kingdom, which considered Canada a "Realm of the Commonwealth"; the government of Louis St. Laurent ended the practice of using'Dominion' in the Statutes of Canada in 1951. In 1982, the passage of the Canada Act, bringing the Constitution of Canada under Canadian control, referred only to Canada, that year the name of the national holiday was changed from Dominion Day to Canada Day.
The term Dominion was used to distinguish the federal government from the provinces, though after the Second World War the term federal had replaced dominion. Indigenous peoples in present-day Canada include the First Nations, Métis, the last being a mixed-blood people who originated in the mid-17th century when First Nations and Inuit people married European settlers; the term "Aboriginal" as a collective noun is a specific term of art used in some legal documents, including the Constitution Act 1982. The first inhabitants of North America are hypothesized to have migrated from Siberia by way of the Bering land bridge and arrived at least 14,000 years ago; the Paleo-Indian archeological sites at Old Crow Flats and Bluefish Caves are two of the oldest sites of human habitation in Canada. The characteristics of Canadian indigenous societies included permanent settlements, complex societal hierarchies, trading networks; some of these cultures had collapsed by the time European explorers arrived in the late 15th and early 16th centuries and have only been discovered through archeological investigations.
The indigenous population at the time of the first European settlements is estimated to have been between 200,000
Winnipeg Route 150
Route 150, locally known as St. Anne's Road, is a major arterial route in Winnipeg, Canada, it branches off from St. Mary's Road in north St. Vital and runs southeastward through central and southern St. Vital to the Perimeter Highway, it is a collector road for traffic between south St. Boniface and south St. Vital, downtown. St. Anne's Road from St. Mary's Road to Fermor Avenue is part of the Trans-Canada Highway. St. Anne's Road ends at the Red River Floodway; this part of the road was signed as Provincial Road 300. The speed limit on Route 150 is 60 km/h, except for the section directly north of the Perimeter Highway, where it increases to 70 km/h. Prior to the construction of the Red River Floodway and Highway 59, St. Anne's Road was a used road connecting Winnipeg with the community of Ste. Anne and much of southeastern Manitoba, including the town of Steinbach. Sections of the original country road still exist in the Rural Municipalities of Taché and Ste. Anne, but is no longer a continuous road.
Outside of Winnipeg, the road is spelled Ste. Anne's Road. In 2013, the Manitoba government unveiled futures plans to construct an interchange at the junction of the Perimeter and St. Anne's Road, to replace the at-grade intersection and traffic lights that exist. From north to south: The entire route is in Winnipeg
Winnipeg Route 95
Route 95 is a city route located in Winnipeg, Manitoba. It runs in the southwest part of the city from Route 105 east to Route 42, it is named Roblin Boulevard west of Assiniboine Park, where it becomes Corydon Avenue for the remainder of its route. It meets Route 42 near the Confusion Corner intersection; the Corydon Avenue segment of the route is home to Winnipeg's Little Italy District, is served by the 18-Corydon Winnipeg Transit bus route. The avenue was named after Corydon Partlow Brown, a member of the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba from 1878 to 1888; the more westerly Roblin Boulevard segment was named for former Manitoba premier Rodmond Roblin.
