About the Candidate

WINDOG considers Sherri Rollins to be 'dog-unfriendly'. She did not wish to share her views on off-leash dog parks with voters.

Platform: Rollins says her platform is about getting the basics right. She would improve services - snow plowing, street clearing, public transit, and garbage collection, and introduce curbside composting. She would fix roads, renew water and sewer infrastructure, reduce crime, address homelessness, preserve green spaces, and support public safety, while keeping taxes affordable and public services sustainable.

As a public servant, Rollins has held various policy roles in the provincial and federal governments, in the private sector, and with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. She has written for newspapers and appeared on radio and television responding to public policy issues.

Rollins is the chair of the Winnipeg School Division, one of only a few indigenous individuals in Canada to be elected to this position. Rollins earned a Bachelor of Arts in conflict resolution studies from the University of Winnipeg

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?
