Huge Development Proposed in Winnipeg
 
A Winnipeg developer is proposing a 200-hectare building that would house hotels, an amusement park, golf courses, offices and more.

Anthony Panchoo says he has the backing he needs for the multi-billion dollar project called Dreamscape through various partners.

But he says he needs to speak with the three levels of government to talk about infrastructure.

Panchoo says the project would take 12 years to build, and once complete, it would make Winnipeg a global destination.
