Questionnaire Response

Ross Eadie - Mynarski

Why did you decide to run in the 2018 (Winnipeg Civic Election / School Board Election)?

“It is my hope you believe I have brought a strong voice in standing up for the North End and West Kildonan during my two terms as Councillor for the Mynarski Ward.  Knowing how things work behind the scenes at city hall is very important to ensure the North End and West Kildonan realize continued improvement.  On October 24, 2018, please consider a vote for my strong experienced voice on City Council.”

What experience will you bring to complement your role as (Mayor / Councillor / School Trustee)?

I have lived, worked, gone to school, and participated in many community activities and organizations through out the North End and West Kildonan for over fifty years.  I served as a trustee in the Seven Oaks School Division from 2002 to 2006, and  I’ve now served as city councillor from 2010 to 2018.  All of my experience can be found on www.rosseadie.ca. Here are some highlights:

 

Many years of volunteer advocacy on many issues, including accessibility of city services and infrastructure, contributes to my ability to stand up for Winnipeggers. My Red River College Business Administration diploma, with top student honours as the Lieutenant Governor’s Medal winner in 1990, and starting two businesses, gives Ross enough experience to understand the needs of business.  Ross believes success only comes with people working together.

What are some issues that you would like to stand for in your role as (Mayor / Councillor / School Trustee), and why are these issues important to you?

Continuing Infrastructure Renewal

Reducing Crime

Standing Up for Fair City Financing

Promoting Living Wages

Improving Parks and Recreation

Building The Chief Peguis Extension

 

Reducing Crime

 

Our Winnipeg Police Service (WPS) is essential for dealing with today’s crime and social problems on the front line. The WPS has been evolving into a more efficient service with civilianization and divisional changes to reduce overtime and provide more time for officers to be on the street.  It is not the WPS that caused the escalating costs for the Headquarters and land cost for a needed new North District police station.  The WPS needs the facilities and tools to deliver an adequate and effective service.

 

The demand for WPS service continues to rise. The WPS can’t do it all, and they need strong citizen help to make our city safer.

 

We need safety strategies in our neighbourhoods, with targeted funding for business improvement zones, not-for-profit agencies and resident associations, to work with the WPS.

 

We need grant increases for the many prevention, leisure, recreation and sport offerings like 24/7 youth drop-in centres. Instead of the steady decline, we need to renew our own sport, recreation and leisure services – for all of us!

What is something that you appreciate about the (City of Winnipeg / the ward / the school ward or school division) you wish to represent?

Winnipeg, the North End and West Kildonan are full of great people who have a huge resource of skills, intelligence and caring.  Our diversity in business and people means there is a potential for growth to achieve all the good things in life.

 

Building the Chief Peguis Extension

 

North Winnipeg deserves growth just like the South! There is plenty of commercial and industrial opportunity with the Chief Peguis Trail extension west, and Winnipeg’s part of CentrePort. Growth will pay for this extension and solve many traffic problems in Margaret Park and Garden City.  Like Calgary and Edmonton, we need to adopt similar debt policy.

 

“I will continue to advocate for this project!”

 

Promoting Living Wages

 

Our Winnipeg services provided decent paying jobs for many new and existing North Enders and Winnipeggers.  Our parents could afford to raise us so we could realize even better paying jobs.

 

In the last two decades, Winnipeg has seen lower quality services provided by contractors. Nobody will deliver good service if they are paid less than a “living wage”.

 

“I will be pushing forward a ‘living wage’ policy for city-delivered and contract-delivered services.”

Do you have any other comments regarding your candidacy?

Continuing Infrastructure Renewal

 

Our essential infrastructure of roads, sidewalks, bridges, transit facilities, water mains, sewers, and water and sewage processing plants must be improved to allow for population and economic growth and environmental stewardship!

 

Since Ross advocated for the road renewal programs, 62 blocks of local streets and 32 blocks of regional roads have been renewed in Mynarski. Many sidewalk renewals and TBO treatments were also completed here. Through continued support from Ross and Council, there are many more blocks to be renewed including a few of many regional streets – Main St., Mountain Ave. and Inkster Blvd., and a few of many local streets – Cork Ave., Sutherland Ave. and Andrews St..
