It's time to move the railways!
"...it is pretty easy to see that a debilitating partisan grudge is at the heart of this decision." - Winnipeg Free Press, September 10, 2016
Instead of working collaboratively with our public and private sector partners, the Conservative government cut the railway relocation study.
Our federal and municipal governments disagree with Mr. Pallister. Mayor Brian Bowman has joined federal MPs and non-profit organizations in their calls for a study to determine how much removal or relocation would cost.
Rail relocation can open up opportunities for urban renewal, and bridge social divides in Winnipeg. In place of the old yards we can build rapid transit corridors, wider and safer streets to navigate the city more easily, increase urban density and build more affordable housing.

And send Brian Pallister a message — we want innovation, not cuts!
