From Winnipeg Votes (CBC) accessed 18 Oct 2018:

Q: “How would you improve public transit service for people in the St. Norbert-Seine River ward?” “I’ve been out at bus stops every day, Monday to Friday, since July 2, talking to transit users in order to understand what’s working in the system and where some of the challenges are. And what I’ll do is I’ll bring forward that input and work with the city and city officials and transit officials and council, obviously, to bring forward a safe, accessible reliable transit plan for the city.”
