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?

Yes dog park creation and improvement would be part of the following commitment:

Improving Parks and Recreation

Our parks, leisure, recreation, and youth sport makes the North End, West Kildonan and Winnipeg a better place to live. This infrastructure is just as important as roads and bridges. There is a dire need to renew and improve our parks and recreation facilities!

“Similar to road renewal programs, I will be advocating for park and recreation/sport facilities renewal and improvement programs to deal with our deteriorating parks and recreation facilities.”

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?

I have no problem with this designated use, but I believe as I voted that the master plan already allows for this single-use perspective. It seems to me that there will be consultations on dog park provisions when a variety of options are possible including single use. In some of our dog parks, there fences missing which should be covered by provisions in my answer to question one.
