Vivian Santos – Point Douglas 2018

Specific reference on Vivian Santos’ social media re active transportation includes: create AT trail and multi-use path in Northwood/Burrows community.

From Vote Winnipeg 2018 (Winnipeg Free Press) accessed 2 Oct 2018:

Q: “What should Winnipeg’s plan be for the future of public and active transit?” “In the Point Douglas Ward, there is currently a lack of public and active transportation. I will be advocating for the residents to ensure the northwest quadrant receives better transit services, such as providing more transit routes and times. As well as, creating more active transportation routes.”

Q: “What is your position on reopening Portage and Main to pedestrians?” “This is an issue of access for people with disabilities, full stop. If we are not going to open the corner, renovations need to properly and fully support universal design, as well as eliminate safety issues that have been widely reported, especially by women.”

From Winnipeg Votes 2018 (CBC) accessed 17 Oct 2018:

Q: “What is your stance on opening up Portage and Main to pedestrians?” “I have been hearing more about it. I have been watching and listening and hearing some of the views coming forward. I am also educating myself about it. I would like to continue the dialogue and the plebiscite is great for Winnipeggers. Now we know the reasons for opening it up, like accessibility, and businesses are for it. I think we need to keep educating people and understanding where they are coming from. Right now, I still want to continue listening.”

The candidate completed the 2018 all-candidate environmental survey: A coalition of Winnipeg Environmental Organizations compiled questions for an all-candidate (Mayoral and Councilor) survey with questions relating to the environment, including AT.
