Priorities for Daniel McIntyre

Out at Ellice Street Festival

From strolling down Sargent enjoying the shops and restaurants to cycling down the leafy streets of Westminster or Wolseley, Daniel Mac has the best neighbourhoods in Winnipeg -but with sustained public investment it could be even better.

I want to build a greener, more just city. Everything the city does has impacts on working families, including those who are struggling to get by.  Before pouring millions into new roads and other infrastructure that primarily benefit suburban developers, we must consider how poor bus service and fare increases affect those who can’t afford to get to work. Instead of putting organic materials into landfills, we should adopt a long-term vision how our waste contributes to climate change. Rather than offloading our city’s fiscal shortfalls onto the most marginalized members of our community, we can re-focus municipal resources to create good jobs and grow our economy to make it work for everyone.

Here are some of the areas I want to improved for Daniel McIntyre:

  • Supporting transit
  • Creating good jobs at living wages
  • Composting and recycling
  • Building better bike and walking routes
  • Investing in core communities
  • Promoting community safety
