Home   Winnipeg Election 2018   Transcona 2018   Alex Allard – Transcona 2018

No specific statements or platform concerning cycling and active transportation appear on the candidate’s social media (accessed 4 Oct 2018).

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

Q: “What is your position on reopening Portage and Main to pedestrians?” “Personally I don’t feel the need to re-open Portage and Main. As a city, we can better utilize our money on more pressing priorities. However, I will respect the decision by the citizens of Winnipeg during the referendum on October 24th.”

Q: “What should Winnipeg’s plan be for the future of public and active transit?” “Rapid Transit, bike routes and walking paths are aspects of transportation that I feel also need to be supported.

Transcona is seen as a continuous developing community which in turn affects our current traffic system. In order to adapt, we must also consider scheduling better bus routes to accommodate the high density housing market that is taking place in our ward.

Bike lanes and walking paths provide an alternate mode of transportation as well and promotes an active lifestyle.”

From Winnipeg Votes (CBC) accessed 18 Oct 2018:

Q: “Will you work with other wards/municipalities to help improve active transportation links across the city?” “I am looking long-term, where I would become a councillor, join forces with the North Kildonan councillor, the Elmwood, the St. Vital, the St. Boniface [councillors], because I have issues outside Transcona that would benefit the people of Transcona. We have to deal with trains, we have to deal with a very poor Louise bridge … we have to extend Chief Peguis into the northeast corner of Transcona. We have to be able to move in and out of Transcona easier than we are now.”

Q: “What can be done to improve transit service in the area?”  “I know how city politics work, and I know damn well what’s going to happen. If Transcona turns [a rapid transit route] down, they’re going to take all that money, take all that energy, the engineering and say, “Let’s go west instead of east.…” If all levels of government want to put rapid transit in Transcona for service east, I’m all for it. Let them build it for us. Why would we want to fight it?”
