It looks good to me. It is called One Great City! it's named after the slogan on the Welcome to Winnipeg signs.

There are two versions of the song, one called I Hate Winnipeg and another called One Great City. I have both. One is more deep and electric sounding and the other is more clean and acoustic. If anyone is interested pm me.
