I had a fun night meeting people and communicating our issues. Dave (Dodger’s dad) was there as well. The OURS people broke us up into different areas of the city. Riel was heavily represented by different groups. No political people there just a newcomer running in the St. Boniface ward.
Cheers, Lloyd  

Some kind soul left one hell of a mess for us to clean up.

Thanks so much to everybody that supported our garage sale. It sure was a fantastic weekend for it.

What a fantastic day for your clean-up. Thanks to all that came out and lended a hand. Watch for broken glass around the quarry. Removed a lot but there is still some that is around.

Urban Green Space Forum


An OURS-Winnipeg event 

Date: Thursday, May 17, 2018

Time: 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm. Doors open at 6:00 pm

Location: 613 St Mary’s Road at United Church


Please feel free to forward to others who may be interested.




SIGN UP at Facebook or Eventbrite


HEAR a panel of experts on climate change, urban green space planning, health through nature


GIVE your ideas for urban green space priorities, both local area, and city-wide


TELL us how you want to help make green space matter in Winnipeg


MAKE urban green space a top-of-mind issue in the coming civic election and beyond


Urban green spaces provide multiple benefits that are necessary to our City. Benefits are economic, health, well-being, social inclusion, climate change mitigation, education, recreation, biodiversity and more.


A Winnipeg “Master Plan for Green Space” is needed for City-wide planning for river corridors, trees, green spaces and natural areas and to support informed decision making based on a rational and transparent approach.


The City has begun work on a Parks Plan and park surveys that could contribute to components of a Master Plan for Green Space.




Since the project’s last phase of public engagement, a draft of the Off-Leash Dog Areas Master Plan(OLAMP) has been developed, and is available on the project’ s webpage for your review (

A community newsletter summary, an engagement summary, and the full engagement report are also available on the project webpage under the ‘documents’ tab.


Decisions in the draft OLAMP were informed by the large amount of public feedback we received in late 2017. Thank you to the 2,120 people who completed the online survey and 250 people who contributed to the online mapping tool in late 2017, as well as all of the stakeholders and community members who provided feedback on this project.


An online survey has been created to collect additional feedback regarding the draft OLAMP. The online survey will be open until May 20, 2018. Please review the draft OLAMP and/or the OLAMP’s community newsletter and fill out the online survey. We are interested in hearing from dog owners, those who are not dog owners, those who frequent parks and recreational areas throughout the city, and anyone else interested in off-leash areas (OLAs).


The draft OLAMP outlines the City’s vision, goals, guiding values, and objectives for the future establishment of OLAs in Winnipeg, as well as policy and standards created for the development and design of OLAs that are safe, accessible, and sustainable.


Once feedback on the draft OLAMP has been considered, the final OLAMP will be developed. The final OLAMP is intended to be used by both the City and the public. The final OLAMP will act as a reference guide for the public to provide clear policy and processes that illustrate how Winnipeg’s OLAs are sited and established. The final OLAMP will also provide various City departments with guidance for the planning, design, management, and evaluation of current and future OLAs.

Depuis la dernière phase de participation publique du projet, une ébauche du plan directeur sur les terrains pour chiens en liberté (PDTCL) a été produite. On peut consulter celle-ci à partir du site Web du projet (

Un résumé du bulletin communautaire et de la participation publique, ainsi que le rapport complet sur la participation publique, sont également accessibles depuis la page Web du projet, sous l’ongletDocuments.


Les décisions prises dans le cadre de l’ébauche du PDTCL ont tenu compte des nombreux commentaires du public qui ont été recueillis fin 2017. Merci aux 2 120 personnes qui ont répondu au sondage en ligne et aux 250 personnes qui ont utilisé l’outil cartographique en ligne fin 2017, ainsi qu’aux parties intéressées et aux membres de la communauté qui ont fait des commentaires sur ce projet. 


Un sondage en ligne (disponible en français la semaine prochaine seulement) a été créé pour recueillir des commentaires additionnels sur l’ébauche du PDTCL.On peut répondre au sondage en ligne jusqu’au 20 mai 2018. Veuillez passer en revue l’ébauche du PDTCL et/ou le bulletin communautaire du PDTCL, et répondre ausondage en ligne (disponible en français la semaine prochaine seulement). Nous voulons connaître l’avis des propriétaires de chien, des non-propriétaires de chien, des personnes qui fréquentent les parcs et les zones de loisirs de la ville, et de quiconque s’intéresse à la question des terrains pour chiens en liberté (TCL).


L’ébauche du PDTCL fait ressortir la vision, les valeurs principales et les objectifs de la Ville pour ce qui est de l’aménagement futur de TCL à Winnipeg, ainsi que des politiques et des normes d’aménagement et de conception de TCL qui sont sûrs, accessibles et durables.


Une fois que nous aurons passé en revue les commentaires sur l’ébauche du PDTCL, un plan final sera préparé. Ce plan final sera destiné à l’usage du public et de la Ville. Le PDTCL final servira de référence au public et établira une politique et des processus clairs qui représentent la façon dont les sites des TCL de Winnipeg sont choisis et aménagés. Le plan final servira aussi de guide aux services municipaux, en ce qui concerne la planification, la conception, la gestion et l'évaluation des terrains existants et futurs.
