I have been driving around our community to see the impact of last evenings rain on the saturated lands we already have. Here are some areas to watchout for if you are driving. WIlkes Ave heading west just past Shaftesbury is flooded past the middle line marker. Traffic is slowing to a crawl. Many of the roads that are south of Wilkes are experiencing overland flooding onto the roads. I have notified city officials of the danger and am awaiting a response. I will follow up un
I have a reoccurring resolution, keep learning. Each year I commit to completing a course that will make me 1% better than the previous year. I am most proud of my 2020 course selection. Today I officially received my certificate from the University of Alberta for their Indigenous Canada course. As I continue my journey to reconnect with my Mom's history and listen to community leaders & elders in #Winnipeg, this profoundly impacted me. There is much we need to learn. I highl
Did you hear about this? Two #Winnipeg City Councillors want to legalize the use of drugs in the city. Kevin Klein shares his thoughts with you. A Council motion to have the police stop enforcement isn't the way to go. The Police Service leadership across Canada need to have those conversations among themselves, stakeholders and with the Crown prosecutors and assess the value of this kind of action without City Council being involved. Look, it's not an easy problem at all an
For the last eight years, many of the current City Councillors have ignored your community centers and left to fend for themselves. Kevin Klein investigated to understand the real issues from those working to keep community centers open. Klein wants to find solutions for the problems we're having in #Winnipeg.
It's not being talked about in City Hall. You are not seeing social media posts from elected officials talking or even apologizing for it. City of #Winnipeg leadership, the mayor's EPC are ignoring it. So what is it? Winnipeg TOPS the 2020 Police-Reported Violent Crime Severity Index in Canada.You deserve better.
Manitoba Public Health orders impact us all. The implementation of these orders have a financial impact on businesses who wish to remain operational. Many businesses have staff to perform the required vaccine verifications, and it comes at an additional cost to hem. Not for #Winnipeg City Operated arenas, the leadership has placed the responsibility on residents. Hear more in the video above.
Members of #Winnipeg City Council were informed today that Starlight has withdrawn their offer to purchase Portage Place. This represents a major loss of investment dollars in our city and province. I commit to looking for a solution as quickly as possible, and present it to you and my colleagues in all levels of Government. This is not the time to give up.

What really happens at #Winnipeg City Hall? I get asked that question often. I'm also asked how to you deal with all the nonsense. Well, it's not all bad we accomplish things for the residents I serve. We work every day to make a difference, to make Winnipeg just 1% better daily. But, that doesn't answer the questions. I will share the events of the day, frustrations, wins, interesting calls, and more with my daily diary, Inside City Hall. Please watch Episode 1 - Aug 13, 202
Sad news today, former Winnipeg city councillor who served residents of #Winnipeg across four decades has died, Harry Lazarenko. Lazarenko was first elected to city hall in 1974. He served as the councillor for the Mynarski ward until he retired from politics after suffering an aneurysm in 2010. Mr. Lazarenko dedicated his life to serving our community. "You will be missed sir."
WINNIPEG, MB - At the #Winnipeg City Council meeting on May 28th, Councillor Kevin Klein (Charleswood-Tuxedo-Westwood) spoke against the rise of Anti-Semitism and said hate and violence have no place on the streets of Winnipeg.
Not everything that happens at #Winnipeg City Hall is reported by the media. Councillor Kevin Klein takes you inside City Hall and shares the real stories and decisions made with your money that should be talked more. This week, a Construction Zone that wasn't really a construction zone. Skyrocketing water and sewer bills. A Master Plan for who really, and there's more.
Please join me as I take time to recognize International Women's Day and salute the women elected to represent Manitoba and The City of #Winnipeg. Plus, a small tribute to the women who inspire me most.
