From the candidate’s website (accessed 5 Oct 2018): “‘OurWinnipeg’ vision was laid out in extreme detail as to what our communities should look like when it comes to being a Livable Community – one that has many modes of transportation.  I will adhere to this vision.  Bike & Pedestrian paths are essential to us being healthy.  As Mayor, this vision has my full support for procuring $100M to complete this vision.

Clearing of paths during the winter months is essential to keep our citizens moving.  I will support this effort”.
