By Steve Lambert THE CANADIAN PRESS WINNIPEG- Two long-standing events at the Manitoba legislature that allow members of the public nearly unfettered access to the historic building during the holiday season have been cancelled this year partly due to security concerns. The cancellations are the latest signs of tightened security and fears for the safety of politicians, visitors and staff inside the stately building. The annual legislature open house, normally held on a weekend in early or mid-December, allows people to freely roam the building, meet with politicians, and enjoy snacks and musical entertainment.

And there are no guarantees
