About the Candidate

WINDOG considers Harry Wolbert to be 'dog-unfriendly'. He did not wish to share his views on off-leash dog parks with voters.

Platform: Wolbert priorities are addressing poverty, transportation, public safety, and supporting environmentally-friendly initiatives. He pledges a municipal poverty reduction plan, low-income bus passes, and proposes a property-tax freeze. Wolbert supports the conversion to electric buses. The candidate opposes additional BRT lines, the opening of Portage and Main to pedestrian traffic, and cuts to the police budget.

Wolbert, a first-time candidate and an anti-poverty advocate, says he hopes to be elected to ensure affordability measures are raised at City Hall. He is the former chair of the Winnipeg Transit Riders Association. He writes a monthly column on poverty and disability related issues in the Winnipeg Sun. He works for the YMCA-YWCA of Winnipeg as a Special Needs Programming Inclusion Aide.

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?
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?
