UPDATED @ 1:15 - Illegal Destruction of Trees on Roblin


WINNIPEG, MB. - Early Saturday morning social media lit up with reports of a massive house being moved along Roblin Boulevard. There were also reports and outrage that trees were being cut down.


Residents of Charleswood began contacting area Councillor Kevin Klein with questions and concerns. Klein immediately had discussions with city officials and confirmed these actions were illegal, unauthorized, and not condoned by the City of Winnipeg.

Klein said, "Winnipeg Police are involved and more details will come at a later time. I will keep residents informed of this devastating act." Klein also said he would begin work immediately to replace the trees.


Kevin Klein speaks with CJOB's Clay Young the day after.
