Do you ever see something and think, ‘only in Canada!?’ This was the case for a number of people who saw a post from Winnipeg Police’s official Instagram on Friday afternoon. The post, which was liked way over 100 times, showed members of the Winnipeg police force getting involved in a completely impromptu game of street hockey! So Canadian, it hurts!\nAccording to a post from the Main Street Project, a charity which ‘serves the needs of Winnipeg’s most vulnerable residents,’ they were in the middle of hosting their second annual Martha Street Summer Festival when the random hockey game broke out between their staff and police officers.\nWhile the make-shift road hockey arena was set-up for attendees of the festival to play a game, organizers didn’t seem to expect Winnipeg’s police officers to get so involved in the game. In a post to their official Instagram page, the Winnipeg Police Service explained, “This happened yesterday! An impromptu street hockey game broke out on Martha Street between the staff from the @mainstreetproject and our #WPSCadets.”\nThat said, the post neglected to mention which of the two won the game- leading us to believe it may not have been the police cadets! The post concluded, “Not gonna say who won - just thanks for the great game!”\nView this post on Instagram Today we are holding our second annual Martha Street Summer Festival. We have street hockey, card games, manicures, Ladder Ball, and an amazing BBQ thanks to @northwaypharmacybroadway!

Gives me an idea to try this at my place of employment.”\nToday we held our 2nd annual Martha Street Summer Festival!
