Yes, it looks like that larger rural municipality is the Municipality of Hillsburg – Roblin – Shell River.
Backtracking, how did I arrive at that name? Aah yes -- from the MB_Municipal_Boundaries shapefiles, which IIRC came from Manitoba Land Initiative. In these files, LEGAL_NAME = "Municipality of Roblin" (Not actually the full legal name, it would appear). The shape of the municipality matches the post-amalgamation boundary shown here.
I like to go with the smaller, more speciic/local placenames in Canada, even if they don't match a de jure municipality.
"Shell River" is given as the placename in the NRN shapefiles, so I'm thinking I'll use that, and rename it MB482She, instead.

A point request on MB 215: please consider adding a point at Mile 40 Road East, about 2 miles west of MB 44/302 and 4 miles east of MB 12. I traveled to Mile 40 Rd. from the east, then probably turned around there, back when I was county-snagging in the province (though the line I wanted to cross may later have been erased by the province's municipal consolidations).

The MB_Municipal_Boundaries shapefiles have the boundary a bit west of James St, as depicted in OSM by the dotted purple line.
It makes more sense to me to have a point at a major junction near the business center, where more traffic would be generated.
Does 1st St work for you? (This would at least allow travelers to clinch something other than 0% or 100%.)

Yes.

This made me ask,
Did I standardize around cardinal numbers (as I did in AB), ordinal numbers, or use mixed based on local convention? Write program to detect labels.
Across all systems in MB, I found 36 ordinal labels, and 5 cardinal:
mb.mb006      513Rd   L_STNAME_C = "513 Road"
mb.mb275      1Ave    First Ave NW
mb.mb280      1St     L_STNAME_C = "1 Street East"; no GMSV
mb.mb344waw   4St     GMSV: no signs at 4thSt itself; other streets in town signed with ordinal numbers
mb.mb513      1St     First St

I'll give these a closer look to make sure they're appropriate.

OK. I'm going to standardize on ordinal numbers in MB for streets and avenues (MB MB6 513Rd stays as is).
These points will be relabeled, and MB MB215 1stSt will be added.

Non-junctions

MB287: MB10 resynced

Incorrect labels; no intersecting route:
mb.mb255: MB252 -> 159W
mb.mb305: MB336 -> 11W
mb.mb364: MB585 -> 93W
Cases on multiplexes will not be detected. Try a graph-based approach.
-> Logging all points with fewer than 3 incident edges. The only additional results were false positives at MB6/MB391.
