Route 90 Improvements Study survey

You are invited to share your input to help develop a preferred design for the widening of Route 90 between Taylor Avenue and Ness Avenue that will build on the recommendations of the 2012 Route 90 Transportation Planning Study (TPS).

Engagement Updates

West Alexander to East Exchange Corridor recommended design and parking map

Throughout late 2017, the project team met with adjacent property owners to help refine the design. You can now view the recommended design and a map of the parking along the corridor for more information on where parking will be added.

Next steps include a public information session in 2018 to update the community on the status of the project. For more information, please visit winnipeg.ca/walkbikeprojects.

Wolseley to West Alexander Corridor recommended design

The Wolseley to West Alexander Corridor study will be the basis for including cycling infrastructure in future street renewal programs. Based on public feedback and technical analysis, the recommended design includes signage, pedestrian and cyclist push button signals, raised crosswalks/intersections, right in/right out islands, vehicular directional closures, and median barriers.

Further information on feedback provided by citizens throughout this study is available in the public engagement report. Next steps include reviewing the project to determine how it fits with other City priorities and future budget considerations.

For more information, please visit winnipeg.ca/walkbikeprojects.

This newsletter is sent out every other Thursday. We strive to promote events at least two weeks ahead through other means such as newspaper ads, social media, and direct mail.

Somebody wrote all over the club house. The City has been informed as well as the police.

 

WINNIPEG — A late winter storm is brewing as we head into March, triggering Environment Canada to issue a special weather statement on Thursday for southern Manitoba.

The weather agency says a major storm system is tracking into the province beginning Sunday and persisting through Monday.

 

Southern Manitoba is in the path of a Colorado Low as the system spreads heavy snow northwards from the U.S.

“Southern Manitoba will see multiple batches of snow over the coming days as this storm develops,” the statement says.

“The first is forecast to occur on Friday night into Saturday morning. Snow is forecast to develop in North Dakota, then lift northwards through southern Manitoba. Amounts with this band of snow are forecast to remain low, with general accumulations of up to four centimetres.”

Great news, Sadie has been found. After a week away from home the family is back together.

Happy New Year! 
We hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season and is ready for what is to come in 2018! 
One thing to note is that 2018 is the Year of the Dog! So while we celebrate all the fun and exciting things that are in store for us this year, remember to also celebrate with your pooch too !
 

Change a Pet’s Life Day

Did you know that there’s a special animal holiday coming up? January 24th is Change A Pet’s Life Day! If you’re an animal lover, like us, you may wish that you could help every homeless pet. While that may be too much for any one person to manage, you can definitely change the life of at least one pet. Here, a Brampton, ON vet discusses how we can really make a difference to our animal companions.

Adopting

The best thing you can do to change a pet’s life is to adopt one. Bringing a new pet into your home is a lifetime commitment, however. Before proceeding, make sure you are ready to provide your new furry friend with great care for the rest of his or her life. That said, if all the lights are green, why not give a cute, lovable animal a second chance?

Helping Pets In Need

If you’re not able to adopt right now, you can still help pets in need. Donating time, money, or goods is one great way to help. And if you know of an animal that is in a bad situation, speak up! That small act of kindness could make a huge difference. Fostering is another option. This isn’t going to be the right path for everyone, as some people have a very hard time saying good bye when the time comes, but if you have the time and money, consider giving a pet a temporary home. Ask at a local shelter for more information.

Promoting Animal Welfare

Some of the best things you can do to promote good animal welfare start right at home. Make sure that your dog or cat has been spayed or neutered, and is up to date on their vaccinations and parasite control products. Training is also very important for dogs. As for kitties, we strongly recommend keeping Fluffy safe and sound inside.

Spread The Word

Last but not least, spread the word about this pet-tastic holiday by sharing posts on social media. You can share information about animal welfare, or tell the story of how you adopted your pet. Or, post the information for a pet that needs a home. When it comes to helping animals, every little bit counts!

Foster Care Updates

Update on Phoenix...
Please meet Phoenix. This little sweetie, a basset/jack russell cross, is under one-year old and very friendly, easy going with people. She is looking for a home that will provide her with structure and lots of exercise (her jack russell characteristics will do best in this type of environment).

The rescue had her fully checked out when she first came in. She was brought fully up to date on vaccinations, and tested negative for heart worm. She has been on heart worm preventive since she arrived and we also had her spayed. Ideally she is looking for a home without other pets as she likes to be the centre of attention. A family with pets may be considered but it will depend on the home and the experience of the family as we have seen some issues with her wanting to assert dominance in a multi-dog situation.

Ideal families will also need to work on some leash manners with her as this young girl was never on a leash prior to coming into the rescue. The rescue will set up the adopting family with our trainer to assist with leash manners, and some basic socialization skills. She is housebroken and crate trained.

Do you think your home would be perfect for Phoenix? Please complete an application to be considered. Email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like us to send you an application.
