I called Tourism Winnipeg, (800) 665-0204, at 8:55 p.m. GMT on 9/25/95
(4:55 p.m. in Washington, DC; US Eastern Daylight Time, the same as New York).
The answering party said it was 3:55 in Winnipeg;
Winnipeg being Central, this one-hour difference would indicate they're also
still on Daylight Time.
The current "northamerica" file yields a two-hour difference,
and shows Winnipeg back on Standard Time (indicated by the "CST" below):

So it does look as if something is amiss. Whether it's the rule or the
answering party, what the right rule is, and what area the right rule applies
in deponent sayeth not.
