Why is “Know Your Zone” a SCAM ?

 Why is the Snow Parking Ban a SCAM?

The biggest reason the Know Your Zone parking Ban is a  SCAM is because in the vast majority of Winnipeg the organization of the traffic is totally inefficient: Read the rest of this entry »

I’m going to run for City council…. Why!

Today I have declared that I will run for City Council in the Ft Rouge ward.

If you have any wish to understand “where i’m coming from”  you should peruse this blog.  It’s full of reasons WHY I want REAL change at city hall.

For the foreseeable future this blog will do its best to EXPOSE the CORRUPTED values, the CORRUPTED procedures, the CORRUPTED sense of “public service” that abounds at city hall.

I will address the ‘big’ ideas and the lesser ideas that MUST become part of the political discourse if there is to be any progress, any HOPE of progress, in solving the many problems afflicting this city, MANY OF WHICH PROBLEMS ORIGINATE FROM THOSE CORRUPTED VALUES, PROCEDURES AND SENSE OF ENTITLEMENT THAT THIS PRESENT CITY COUNCIL DEMONSTRATES 

FOLLOWING this blog post is my original statement about WHY I am running, but it can most simply AND CONCISELY be stated thus:

#1-  NONE OF THE MAYORALTY CANDIDATES

 IS RAISING ANY SERIOUS ISSUES 

#2 I am totally fed-up with the 

scams, boondoggles,  INCOMPETENCE

and apparent corruption surrounding city hall 

 as evidenced all over this city with the unending abominations

 that this administration AND THE COUNCILLORS sit around and accept.

It looks like the only source of topics for this democracy to discuss will have to come from other then the mayoralty candidates

WE DESERVE SO MUCH BETTER !

Good money after Bad…Of course !

The Editor
Winnipeg Free Press

Dear sir,
Everyone knows the phrase- “Throwing good money after bad” and City Hall and The Province are continuing with the so-called Rapid Transit boondoggle with even more obvious waste of public resources.
The existing Bus Road from Queen Elizabeth Way through the Ft. Rouge Yards… NO! that is not “Rapid Transit”. It is a road dedicated to 1950s style diesel powered buses…has already needed serious repairs and has cost an enormous amount in plowing and sanding and salting. Read the rest of this entry »

City’s lead planner suddenly quits W.F.P Mar 30, 2012

1.)This article seems like an April Fools Joke

(that’s from one of the comments on the Wpg Free Press website)

There are, however, more serious comments that explain that the city planners only make suggestions – that it is City Council and the politicians that screw up plans Read the rest of this entry »

Winnipeg Transit – Rapid or Vapid?


Winnipeg is entering the Forefront of Rapid Transit,  BUT unfortunately that ‘forefornt’ is from 1950.

Winnipeggers, convinced that they might wait forever for a politician/leader to bring real modern 21st Century Rapid Transit to Winnipeg have swallowed the credo:

“Better SOMETHING NOW than waiting even longer” Read the rest of this entry »

No Paucity of Irony!

The Editor
Winnipeg Free Press

Dear sir:

Finally a politician calling for rail re-location in Winnipeg. Yes, Pat Martin, NDP federal MP is calling for re-location of the CP rail yards. In his recent speech, Martin connected the demise of the centre city, and the exploding sprawl of Winnipeg, with a “paucity of leadership” at City Hall. Read the rest of this entry »
