Not sure if this has been posted before - but it's one of the most surreal tornadoes I have ever seen.

It seems to last for ages, go through several cycles of growth, while moving backwards and forwards.

See what you think.

Most of what you're saying is confirmed in the Wikipedia account of the storm:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elie,_Manitoba_Tornado

There are several other videos in existence, some of which are taken from other directions. The slow forward motion of this storm probably allowed everyone in the small town of Elie to drive to a safer location before the tornado hit their homes (if it did, not all homes there were damaged).

Quite a rare event for Manitoba, both the F5 rating and the slow forward motion are unusual. Prairie tornados usually have a forward speed of 30 to 50 knots. A tornado on July 14, 2000 hit a campground in Pine Lake, Alberta and killed ten people; it was on the ground for two more hours in open ranching country and tracked to the ENE at 40 knots.
