The artwork for this transit controller box was by Tom Andrich in 2005, with sponsorship by Take Pride Winnipeg. The Transit box was replaced in 2013. Original notes follow:

Tom Andrich: "Hudson's Bay represented the fur trade and I was trying to represent the fur trade because that's how Manitoba came to be what it was. I put a Hudson's Bay blankets in there, a big Beaver and the hats that were made from Beaver pelts. The fur trade was huge, and these crazy fashionable hats, you wouldn't think that these silly hats would create a whole province. But that's the way history is a lot of times."
