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?” “We need to have full-fledged debate and deliberations on this and our Winnipeggers should be taken on board. Their decision should be respected and prevail.”

Q: “What is your position on reopening Portage and Main to pedestrians?” “I would like to stall this project right now as we have so many better things to do. We should exercise some prudence in spending hard earned money of taxpayers who are working hard day and night. Winnipeggers have already rejected this already. I am not able to comprehend why the idea of the referendum is being floated and Winnipeggers are being dragged into this never-ending saga, that they have rejected in the first place. Winnipeggers are tired of this and it is getting boring now. I do not know what compulsions they have on this issue, We can appreciate their loyalties to certain sections but I am sorry — not at the cost of taxpayers money. Forgive the taxpayers they worked hard. It is easy to float these kind lofty ideas by sitting on cozy chairs of City Hall but mind it people are working hard in cold day and night. Have some respect for them.”

From Winnipeg Votes 2018 (CBC) accessed 18 Oct 2018):

Q: “What are you planning on doing to improve transit service in the ward?” “My prime concern is the safety issue on transit — the way [transit operators] are being attacked. They are being abused. This has to be addressed… [They] face it day to day. Every time they are scared or uncomfortable, they are just doing their job. There’s no reason to get hurt on the job.”
