  • Safe & Affordable & Accessible Living for Seniors

    by MTLJ, 9 months ago

    I have been retired for three years; I am volunteering for many organizations; and I have attended many community meetings/workshops/presentations for seniors.

    It seems that the same subject keeps coming up for discussion and concerns. The seniors, that have contributed to what Winnipeg is now, cannot find a safe and affordable living to respond to their new needs.

    It is understandable that many decide to move to a smaller space as their house has emptied from children and sometimes spouse. The Seniors still want to connect with the various communities and organizations; they just do not know where to live... Continue reading

  • 311 phone operators provide good service, even at 3:30 a.m.

    by Patersonja, 9 months ago

    311 phone operators provide good help. I could give several examples but the one that helped me recently was about one year ago. Someone nearby my home set off fireworks at 3:30 A.M. and I was awakened with alarm. The dogs were upset and so was I, even when I saw the fireworks and realized they were not gunshots. I phoned 311 and was advised NOT to visit the house with the fireworks party in case there were people out of control. I was advised to call the non emergency police line if the fireworks continued. The operator took the... Continue reading

  • 311

    by julianeb, 9 months ago

    more staff needs to hired for 311, so the wait time isn't so long and things get done!! I've made several calls over the past few years for transit issues, street repairs, back lane flooding, waste pick up issues and my issues are never addressed or handled. Transit needs to ensure their drivers adhere to their bus schedule and not leave early and strand passengers for the next bus, which can be 40 mins and this is way too long in -35 Winnipeg winter weather. they also need to drive better and not the brakes and gas, not speed up...

  • Biking Infrastructure and Changes to the Highway Traffic Act

    by BikingGimp, 9 months ago

    I had the opportunity to witness the resurfacing of Academy between the Maryland bridge and Stafford this summer, they ripped up the median at the time too so I made the assumption that the road my be widened slightly to accommodate a bike lane. That didn't happen and I was quite dissapointed; that could have allowed for the continuation of the bike lane from Maryland to the one on Harrow (1 block west of Stafford).

    I really don't understand why Winnipeg doesn't attach a requirement that all roads having a certain level of repair and all new roads being built... Continue reading

  • All Winnipeg areas should be taken care of and clean

    by Winnipegger, 9 months ago

    I live in an area where there are old couches, matresses, and other household items that people no longer have use for and they throw out with the trash, i think at one time they use to pick up these items and there was no charge for it, I thought that our taxes already paid for the garbage pickup including the household items that are cluttering the back lanes and sometimes set on fire. Whatever happened to making Winnipeg beautiful? Or is that just for certain areas. Something needs to be done to take all the garbage and not charging... Continue reading

  • Millennial Homeowners Who Picked Winnipeg

    by batfinkw, 9 months ago

    As a young couple who chose to make Winnipeg their home, we have approached the City and some of the services offered from a different perspective. It became clear very quickly that the priorities of our City are quite different than your average citizen young or old. While we have dedicated billions on rapid transit (which isn't so rapid) we have also expanded and approved billions in road infrastructure like underpasses, overpasses etc.

    It truly feels that the right hand of the City never knows what the left hand is doing. Whether it be different departments attempting to solve 1... Continue reading

  • Future forward

    by Zoomshanzoom, 9 months ago

    I feel that the City of Winnipeg is doing little to focus on the future of our city, our residents or future residents. The recent waste collection discussions seemed to ignore the need for greener vehicles or the potential for considerable costs with Federal carbon tax implications. Decisions the City makes now for 7 year contracts will definitely cost Winnipeggers considerably more than just the suggested contract price. To ignore CNG use as opposed to diesel contracts is definitely an indication councillors are not going their homework. I am very disappointed in the lack of environmental considerations on these type... Continue reading

  • St James Civic Centre

    by ianmcc, 9 months ago

    With our aging population recreation and healthy living is a priority.The St James Civic Centre needs to be maintained through infrastructure funding.

  • Theatre Program networks to Green Team Opportunities

    by Koehn-s, 9 months ago

    When I was a teenager, long ago, there was a publicly funded Indigenous theatre group that opened my eyes to other peoples art's initiatives; that i participated in, this definitely kept me out of trouble as a vulnerable teenager. I still have all those memories, and most of those friends to recount our wonderful experiences we shared together. Most of the program workers and participants have since went on to run businesses, and are living their dreams out in the world; one becoming a medical doctor. The opportunities provided with me with life-long work skills, such as budgeting, time management,... Continue reading

  • Indigenous Cultural Supports @ Thunderbird House

    by Medicinewheelwoman, 9 months ago

    I am concerned that the use of Indigenous culture as a way to entice tourism to Winnipeg/Manitoba but not have it equally represented throughout the city as an equal culture to the white dominate culture is another form of oppression and cultural appropriation. Such places as The Forks, is a marketed tourist location, which benefits local businesses(Inn at the Forks, Human Rights Museum etc.) that all pay taxes but allowing a place like Thunderbird House to crumble without financial support is hypocritical and the same colonial abuse of Indigenous culture that has never ended. To maintain The Forks for the... Continue reading
