I live in Winnipeg Manitoba and I found this Beetle on our
garage this morning. I took a snap shot of the insect I haven’t
had time to take a proper photo of the insect so far. I used my
Nikon D3100 & SB-400 flash with TTL cord & my 40mm f2.8
micro lens.

Longhorned Borer, we believe

Longhorned Borer:  Stenocorus schaumii

Dear Normally ?,
We believe this is a Longhorned Borer Beetle in the family Cerambycidae, but we are not certain.  We base that guess on the width of the elytry at the base as well as the spine on the thorax.  We have not been able to locate a species identification and we hope our readership can assist.

Update
Thanks to a comment from Mardikavana, we now agree that this looks like the Cerambycid
Stenocorus schaumii which is pictured on BugGuide.

    If I am not wrong then this a female (females abdomen is wider than males) Stenocorus schaumii.

    Leather wing beetle or soldier beetle?

      That thought did cross our mind as well, but we ruled out Soldier Beetles based on some of the features.
