Quotes from candidate’s website related to cycling and active transportation (accessed Sept 2018):

  • Priorities include “ensuring sidewalks are usable year-round”
“I don’t believe that Winnipeg will benefit in the way that it’s been predicted by opening Portage and Main.… We need to deal with the issues that are happening downtown before we go and open another pedestrian corridor.”

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

A: “Public Transportation – Our current Public Transit needs to be accountable for frequency of route stops, and schedules. The residents of our ward are frustrated with the inconsistency of scheduled stops, and the frequency of the buses. The Free Spirit Bus route should be altered to be available for more of the downtown area. Implementation of a parking plan for Transit employees that relives residential streets.” Active Transportation – Approve the cyclist bridge from Fort Rouge Park to Bonnycastle Park with public consultation and engagement from residents to establish cycle paths that work best for the community.”

The candidate did not complete the 2018 all-candidate environmental survey: A coalition of Winnipeg Environmental Organizations compiled questions for an all-candidate (Mayoral and Councilor) survey with questions relating to the environment, including AT.
