A Request For Your Help

Planning is Underway for a South Winnipeg Recreation Complex!

An exciting, new initiative!  Please see Pages 10-11 of the South Winnipeg Community Centre Spring Newsletter for a recent update on our progress.  The City has committed $350,000 for planning, and things are moving forward!

This is my top infrastructure priority in the South Winnipeg-St. Norbert Ward and  you can read more details HERE.

While there is no fixed price tag yet for the facility, we anticipate it could be in the range of $100+ M to serve the growing community. Partnerships with all levels of government and private funding arrangements will be required to make this a reality. I’ve had multiple meetings with Terry Duguid, our Federal Member of Parliament, and am working with a fund development firm to investigate private funding and naming opportunities.

I am Asking For Your Help

The 2016 Provincial election is on Tuesday, April 19. In the coming weeks, Provincial candidates will be knocking on your door looking for your vote.  Please take the opportunity to:

  • Tell them South Winnipeg is rapidly growing and there is a severe shortage of recreation facilities.
  • Ask them to make building a South Winnipeg Recreation Complex the top funding priority in their riding.

Feel free to email or call the candidates directly if you miss them when they come to your door!  The following Provincial ridings represent residents in South Winnipeg:
