About the Candidate

A dog-friendly, dog owning candidate, Stephanie Meilleur's proactively looking for suitable dog park options in her ward. She supports dedicated tax-based funding for dog parks and their designation as 'single-use'. See her comments below.

Platform: Meilleur’s priorities include fixing roads and infrastructure, ensuring sidewalks are usable year-round, safety within the community, fighting to end homelessness, standing up for local businesses and residents, enhancing the music and arts scene in Osborne Village, protecting affordable housing, and supporting seniors’ services.

Meilleur is a first-time candidate who describes herself as business-oriented and community-minded. She is the co-owner of a local promotions company that provides event management and marketing. She has certificates in business planning and event coordination. Through her company, she’s worked on many community events including the 103rd Grey Cup Festival, the 2017 Canada Summer Games, and Hockey Manitoba 100th Anniversary.

Meilleur has served as the executive director of the Osborne Village Business Improvement Zone for the last six years and is the outreach director for the Manitoba Cheerleading Federation.

Q1: If elected, will you put forward and/or support a motion in Council to create a dedicated tax-supported capital fund for the creation of new dog parks and the upgrading of existing ones to comply with standards in the City of Winnipeg’s new Off-Leash Area Master Plan? Why or why not?

Absolutely! Winnipeg is too far behind the concept and execution of creating dog parks. Winnipeg currently has the second highest person to dog ratio in Canada and less than 200 acres of off leash dog park access.

Q2: If elected, will you put forward and/or support a motion to designate off-leash areas as “single-use” parks where only those activities associated with off-leash dogs are permitted? Why or why not?

Yes. Dogs need space to socialize with other dogs. This activity needs to be contained to single use, dogs activity only.
