Hm, not hardcoded then. I looked again at ftp://ftp.muug.mb.ca/mirror/
The epel mirror is to be found in the hierarchy below fedora. That's why it looked 
to be absent.
I don't think this is a problem on your end.
If this problem persists, I'd contact them as there might be a problem.
You could change to the baseurl instead for a while and then try again.
I don't know a way to "exclude" certain mirrors.
