Community advocates are looking for some leadership from our city’s elected officials. We need our mayor to lead on poverty reduction. Did you know that the City of Winnipeg has a 10-year plan to end homelessness, but it still doesn’t have a poverty reduction plan? Anti-poverty advocates believe that all three levels of government have a role to play when it comes to ending poverty and homelessness in Winnipeg.
I believe that a Winnipeg without poverty is possible. My vision for the City of Winnipeg is that of a caring and inclusive community. One where the lives of all of its citizens matter. We need more men and women at city hall who will stand-up and fight for the little guy!
