Petition update

Wow! In just a few weeks we've collected 1277 signatures on our petition to have Canoe Club CG remain public greenspace.

About 30 volunteer canvassers collected signatures from neighborhoods around Canoe Club in only two weeks. Copies of the petition have been provided to those candidates running in this weekend's civic byelection who responded to our correspondence on the issue. The petition will also be forwarded to Mayor Sam Katz.

Thanks on behalf of all of us to those volunteer canvassers, and job well done!


  1. Congratulations on obtaining such a quick community response. Your petition to the new City councillor was definitely heard. Brian Mayes was at recent community meeting on the fate of the Windsor Park and St. Boniface Golf Courses as well. A second petition addressing Winnipeggers concerns will be sent to the Mayor and to all of the City Councillors. Please consider signing and supporting this petition as well.
