WINNIPEG, MB. - The Main Street Projects Outreach Van answers the call from the City of Winnipeg to address residents in encampments, bus shelters, and those who need a safe, warm bed, all at NO CHARGE.
However, the Main Street Resource Van had to cut their service in half because of no funding. That meant police or fire/paramedics would have to respond at a cost that is 15 times higher.
Councillor Kevin Klein (Charleswood-Tuxedo-Westwood) found the money that could help to put the van back into service.
But, how did your City Councillor vote? Did they say yes to helping or no?
