Candidate’s website has a few statements related to cycling and active transportation, including “Creating more paths for cyclists and electric bikes” and a platform on rapid transit.

From Vote Winnipeg 2018 (Winnipeg Free Press) accessed 2 Oct 2018:

Q: “What should Winnipeg’s plan be for the future of public and active transit?”

A: “Our city is growing and not slowing down, with more and more cars on the road everyday and construction on every major route, we need a LRT to run NORTH to SOUTH and EAST to WEST with stops along the way to pick up passengers. This would be an express surface which will drop and pick up passengers who will have taken a bus that runs strictly in their area, eliminating the long routes that some busses currently have.

There are more than just university students taking the bus. There are people who take the bus to work, for shopping and to get to appointments, so connection from the North for people working or going to school in the south can get there relatively quickly and affordably in hopes they refrain from using their personal cars.

Transit that goes around the perimeter would be great. With stops each intersection that are fed from feeder routes.

I support proper bike lanes that don’t merge onto the road ways. I would support, in the next couple years the possibility of snow clearing some of the major bike baths if they are being used regularly throughout the winter. It would be a cost benefit analysis.

I also believe that more walking paths are a good thing because people enjoy walking outside and seeing the real beauty of our city.”
