About the Candidate
Doug Wilson is a 'dog-friendly' candidate who supports dedicated funding for off-leash areas and the 'single-use' designation, both with conditions. See his comments below.
Platform: Wilson cites poverty as Winnipeg's number one issue and promises to work with the Province to increase wages and improve education. He also pledges to increase revenues by increasing Winnipeg's population. Wilson is a supporter of public transit and favours the development of light rail for heavily-used transit routes. He is opposed to reopening Portage and Main to pedestrians. He proposes using locally developed technology to construct a dome over a large portion of Winnipeg to keep city streets and sidewalks snow and ice-free during the winter.
Wilson was elected as mayor of Morden in 2006 and was defeated in the 2010 election. He lives in Winnipeg and works as a business development officer at local travel agency. He is also a musician, playing saxophone at various venues with several local bands.
