WINNIPEG VOTERS ELECT DOG PARK-FRIENDLY CITY COUNCIL

Posted by / in INFORMATION / No comments yet

 

Good news for Winnipeg dog lovers! Mayor Brian Bowman and a majority of  city councillors – a total of 10 out of 16 incumbents – have declared themselves to be dog park-friendly. WINDOG has awarded five of them – Bowman, Browaty, Lukes, Mayes, and Schreyer –  “super dog-park friendly” status for their pro-active efforts to expand and enhance the city’s off-leash green spaces.

During the election campaign, dog park-friendly candidates  responded positively to WINDOG’s  survey, indicating they’re open to the coalition’s proposal to establish a dedicated tax-supported line in the City’s capital budget. The dedicated funding would be used to create new dog parks and upgrade existing ones to comply with standards in the City’s new Off-Leash Dog Park Master Plan.

Dog park friendly candidates also indicated their willingness to designate off-leash areas as single-use spaces where only those activities associated with off-leash dogs are permitted.

DOG PARK UNFRIENDLIES

WINDOG considers that candidates who chose not to respond to the survey view off-leash dog parks as a very low priority. Unresponsive candidates are considered to be dog unfriendly.
