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 btprmb@gmail.com if you would like us to send you an application.

Chief Peguis Trail
 
Chief Peguis Trail Extension Saturday Jan. 20 2018

Winnipeg Free Press
3:00 AM | 3 
2 minute read

THE Seven Oaks School Division is hosting a town hall forum Monday evening on the proposed western extension of the Chief Peguis Trail.

The project requires public support if it is to be selected for funding by city council so it can go ahead in 2018, said a notice issued by the division about the 7 p.m. meeting at West Kildonan Collegiate.

It’s encouraging people in the area to attend the meeting, which will feature presentations about the extension followed by a question-and-answer session.

The division is in favour of the project because, it says, it would “increase the commercial tax base, which will increase provincial education funding and help put north Winnipeg on par, developmentally speaking, with other areas of the city. This means the likelihood of better facilities in our area for community members.”

Owner and dog found by police after attack in Gros Morne leaves smaller dog dead
The Rural Municipality of Rosser, just northwest of Winnipeg, is investigating after a dog was killed by another dog at Little Mountain Park, in the northwest outskirts of the city, late last month.

 

Rachael Jennings said her golden retriever, Hailey, was walking in the park on Aug. 29 at about 6:30 p.m. with family members. While there, another dog, described as a German shepherd named Allie, charged Hailey on one of the park's trails and attacked the golden retriever, Jennings said. The park is an off-leash area, and neither dog was wearing a leash at the time of the attack.

Hailey took a few steps into the bushes and then died, said Jennings.

'I just lost my dog violently': Pet owners struggle with grief, trauma after dog attacks
Witness Darlene Korzinksi saw the attack and described it as unprovoked.

Allie lunged for Hailey, who immediately rolled over on her back in submission, Korzinski said. The German shepherd bit Hailey on the throat and wouldn't let go.

"It happened so fast and you never think it's going to be a really bad situation," said Korzinski. "This dog was on a little mission. It wasn't like a little scrap and you break it up. Allie's owner couldn't peel her off, couldn't get her off the dog."

Hailey was about five years old and in good health, say her owners. (Submitted)
Korzinski said family members tried to save Hailey, and she tried to revive the dog through CPR but was unsuccessful.

"I tried, I couldn't tell you how many minutes," she said.

Korzinski said after family had left with Hailey's body, she confronted Allie's owner, who has not yet been identified.

"'I go, 'What are you going to do, like, anything?' And he goes, 'Well, what can I do? The dog was old and was missing a couple of teeth.'"

The owner then went back into the park to let his dog run around, she said. "I was blown away, to be honest."

Warning to other dog owners
Hailey was five years old and in good health, said Jennings. She said her children were devastated by the dog's death, describing them as "absolutely hysterical" after Hailey died.

A vet told Korzinski that Hailey's trachea may have been crushed or the bite may have caused an aneurysm.

 

Korzinksi, who is a member of the Little Mountain Park Pet Owners Association, said she printed up a poster warning owners about the incident. The poster has been put up in other area parks and it has been shared by several dog groups on Facebook.

Korzinksi said she has seen Allie and her owner at the park since the incident.

Jennings said Allie's owner has tried to call her to apologize, but said she doesn't have the strength to talk to him.

"Two wrongs don't make a right," she said. "I'm not out for blood here, I'm not out for vengeance … I just think he needs to take responsibility as a pet owner" and leash and muzzle his dog while Allie is around others.

Owner and dog found by police after attack in Gros Morne leaves smaller dog dead
Korzinski said she'd like to see it taken a step further.

"He's responsible for his dog. I'm not blaming his dog.… He should have been responsible for that dog a long time ago when it was showing any kind of aggression. 

"I want him to be punished. I don't want that dog to be allowed in any public place, where there's people, there's kids, there's other dogs … and I think his dog should be deemed a dangerous dog and have a special permit for it, if he's allowed to keep it."

The park is within Winnipeg's Perimeter Highway, but is technically located in the Rural Municipality of Rosser, so an investigation is the responsibility of the municipality, a city spokesperson said.

"Since Little Mountain Park is in the RM of Rosser and is outside of city limits, our bylaws do not apply so we are not able to conduct an investigation or take action in this case," the spokesperson said in an email to CBC.

"We never like to see something like this tragedy occur and we want a thorough investigation to take place with appropriate outcomes, so we have referred this incident over to the RM of Rosser for their handling."

RM of Rosser CAO Larry Wandowich said the municipality is investigating and will take appropriate action.

RM staff are not aware of any other dog deaths that have ever happened in Little Mountain Park, he added.
Clarifications
An earlier version of this story said Winnipeg's Animal Services Agency was conducting an investigation into the dog's death along with the Rural Municipality of Rosser. If fact, the city has referred the incident to the RM of Rosser.

Raisins
 
If you have a dog ... PLEASE read this and send it on. If you don't have a dog, please pass along to friends who do. Written by: Laurinda Morris, DVM Danville Veterinary Clinic Danville , OH This week I had the first case in history of raisin toxicity ever seen at MedVet. My patient was a 56-pound, 5 yr old male neutered lab mix that ate half a canister of raisins sometime between 7:30 AM and 4:30 PM on Tuesday. He started with vomiting, diarrhea and shaking about 1 AM on Wednesday but the owner didn't call my emergency service until 7 AM. I had heard somewhere about raisins AND grapes causing acute Renal failure but hadn't seen any formal paper on the subject. We had her bring the dog in immediately. In the meantime, I called the ER service at MedVet, and the doctor there was like me - had heard something about it, but... Anyway, we contacted the ASPCA National Animal Poison Control Center and they said to give IV fluids at 1 & 1/2 times maintenance and watch the kidney values for the next 48-72 hours. The dog's BUN (blood urea nitrogen level) was already at 32 (normal less than 27) and creatinine over 5 (1.9 is the high end of normal). Both are monitors of kidney function in the bloodstream. We placed an IV catheter and started the fluids. Rechecked the renal values at 5 PM and the BUN was over 40 and creatinine over 7 with no urine production after a liter of fluids. At that point I felt the dog was in acute renal failure and sent him on to MedVet for a urinary catheter to monitor urine output overnight as well as overnight care. He started vomiting again overnight at MedVet and his renal values continued to increase daily. He produced urine when given lasix as a diuretic. He was on 3 different anti-vomiting medications and they still couldn't control his vomiting. Today his urine output decreased again, his BUN was over 120, his creatinine was at 10, his phosphorus was very elevated and his blood pressure, which had been staying around 150, skyrocketed to 220 ... He continued to vomit and the owners elected to Euthanize. This is a very sad case - great dog, great owners who had no idea raisins could be a toxin. Please alert everyone you know who has a dog of this very serious risk. Poison control said as few as 7 raisins or grapes could be toxic. Many people I know give their dogs grapes or raisins as treats including our ex-handler's. Any exposure should give rise to immediate concern. Onions, chocolate, cocoa, avocadoes and macadamia nuts can be fatal, too. Even if you don't have a dog, you might have friends who do. This is worth passing on to them. Confirmation from Snopes about the above ..... http://www.snopes.com/critters/crusader/raisins.asp

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.”

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.

Off-Leash Plan
 
 

Re: The City of Winnipeg’s OFF-LEASH DOG AREAS MASTER PLAN

 

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 (winnipeg.ca/offleashareas).

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. 

 

 

For additional information about the project and its process, please visit the project webpage at winnipeg.ca/offleashareas.

 

 

 

Thanks!

 

 

 

 

Bonjour,

 

Objet : PLAN DIRECTEUR SUR LES TERRAINS POUR CHIENS EN LIBERTÉ de la Ville de Winnipeg

 

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 (winnipeg.ca/terrainspourchiens).

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. 

 

 

Pour de plus amples renseignements sur le projet et son processus, veuillez visiter la page Web winnipeg.ca/terrainspourchiens.

 

 

 

Merci!

The city is one step closer to getting more off-leash dog parks.


The city’s Protection and Community Parks Committee voted in favour of spending $1.8 million over the next six years to add dog parks — $300,000 each year over the next six years totalling $1.8 million.

Right now, there are 11 off-leash dog parks in Winnipeg. In November 2017, the city opened the Bonnycastle Dog Park downtown, which is a fenced, 0.12-hectare area on Assiniboine Avenue.

The city will also look at sharing unused community centre hockey rinks that could be flipped in the summer months.

Executive Policy Committee and City Council will both be voting on this before it’s official.

Off-leash
 
Off-leash dog park master plan passes first hurdle
A long-awaited master plan for the creation of additional off-leash dog parks passed a hurdle at city hall Wednesday despite objections from several dog club representatives.

The city’s proposed off-leash areas master plan was unanimously endorsed by Mayor Brian Bowman and members of his executive policy committee.

The plan would, if council approves, set aside $300,000 annually for the next six years to set up additional off-leash parks.

However, representatives from several dog clubs objected to the provisions of the plan that would see existing green spaces doubling as off-leash areas.

The dog club representatives argued that single-use areas are preferred, as having shared sites results in conflicts with other users.

Parks manager Dave Domke told EPC that the goal is to ultimately have separate off-leash areas but it’s not possible to meet public demand without having some shared spaces at the outset.

City of Winnipeg Presentation
 
City of Winnipeg presentation:

Hello, my name is Lloyd Johnson and I represent the Little Mountain Park Pet Owners Association and the Little Mountain Conservancy Group . I am here to talk to the council about the value of single-use off leash dog parks.

Little Mountain Park is located outside the City boundaries within the R.M. of Rosser. It is the site of the original City of Winnipeg foundation quarry’s that were opened before the City was incorporated. Little Mountain Park was the original location to the village of Mount Royal Manitoba where 200 people called the area home. Little Mountain is also home to many at risk plants, a Leopard Frog population, a variety of animals and our environment plays host to a large a varied group of birds like owls, hawks and the occasional bald eagle. Our native hazelnut tree seeds have found a home in the Arbour seed catalogue farm located in the States. As an interesting side note, we are also part of Haunted Manitoba!

The pet owners of Little Mountain have been stewards of the park for years, working hand in hand with the City’s park personnel. We have enjoyed a positive relationship in matters of park maintenance, garbage clean-up and the introduction of recycling bins. We have introduced two new bat houses and worked on a bird house project with a special needs group to enhance the beauty of the environment.

The trails of Little Mountain Park have long provided a release from the tensions of the day for both people and their dogs. The health and wellness provided by a simple walk are immeasurable. There is a strong sense of community created by just walking and talking to other park users. The trails of Little Mountain also allow a “dog to be a dog’.  Running, playing, chasing and being with other dogs is all part of the psychological make-up that goes into having a well behaved dog. We had a petition a while ago to make the entire Little Mountain Park a legally off leash park instead of just having one small area that is bordered the busy Klimpke Road and Farmer Road. The single use park concept being presented represents an open space to walk, enjoy the natural environment at every time of the year.

There are several examples of group use activity that have not worked out well. The placement of a football field in the middle of the ‘off leash area’ would be one and the large fairs that have been using the park have done major damage to the environment. The vandalism of the washroom facility is a constant sore spot with both the dog owners and the parks personnel. Partying, bon fires and the breaking of bottles have made the quarry areas dangerous to everybody. The setting off of fireworks and tall grass prairie do not mix well!

Our location is unique to the city. As mentioned before, we fall outside the City limits and as such are considered an “orphan park”.  We do not have any official political representation on City Council, however Brian Mayes has kindly taken us under his wing and has been a great supporter of our park and our efforts to make it a better place.

In conclusion, each and every park has different concerns and circumstances. All have something to offer both in physical and mental health. But it is the love for our pets that bind us together. And that is worth fighting for!

Thank you for the opportunity to speak.

New Opportunities for Engagement
Question of the Week 4
Last summer, your answers to our Questions of the Week gave us guidance on where to focus on improving engagement and we want to hear from you again.
 
Question 4: Have you participated in public engagement organized by the City of Winnipeg?

If this question looks familiar, it’s because we asked the same question last year. We are interested in comparing results.  

Question of the Week 3 Results
We received 28 questions and comments to the third summer question of the week: Do you have any questions about getting involved? Thank you for taking the time to respond.

Questions ranged from project specific to consideration of input. Questions were grouped into four themes. Some questions below have been shortened to reduce the length of this newsletter and several comments did not require a response.

To see all of the responses received to this question and previous questions of the week, please visit winnipeg.ca/publicengagement. If you have other questions about engagement, please contact City-Engage@winnipeg.ca

Quote: Questions and Comments
Response
Getting involved 
What is the proper procedure for contacting someone at the City with an idea, suggestion, question, etc.?

Also, if a deadline is missed to submit responses to a survey, is there any other recourse to be heard?
If you have an idea, suggestion, or question, please contact 311 to find out more. They will provide you with a unique reference number for that request if service is required. If want to provide input after a survey has closed, most project webpages include contact information to contact the project team directly, such as with the Route 90 Improvements project.
I want to be able to address standing committees as a citizen. 
If you are interested in appearing as a delegation at a Standing Policy Committee, please see the schedule of committees and register with City Clerk’s. For more information, please visit theappear as a delegation webpage.
How can a resident initiate a public consultation process?
There is currently no formal process in place for a resident to initiate a public consultation process. Public consultation is typically conducted on capital projects. If you have an idea or would like to discuss public consultation further, please contact City-Engage@winnipeg.ca.
I live in the North West. If a project came that I was interested in, how would I get involved?
All projects with public engagement are listed on the public engagement webpage. There is a map on the page to direct you to projects in different areas. If you are interested in a particular project, follow the link to find out more about how to get involved.
Has the City ever supported a citizen advisory council? Might it do so again?
There are a number of citizen advisory positions, including boards and commissions. Currently, the City isaccepting applications for boards and commissions until October 19, 2018.
I would love to get involved with the OLAMP and the active transit initiatives, I guess in a citizen engagement perspective.
The Off Leash Areas Master Plan is available here: winnipeg.ca/offleashareas 
Active Transportation initiatives are available here:winnipeg.ca/walkbikeprojects
Consideration of public input
What is the use of getting  involved when City Hall ignores the wishes of the locals? 
Balancing input from a number of perspectives is one of the challenges of decision making. Winnipeggers often have a range of views on any given topic or issue and gathering input and facilitating discussions between those with different views can produce better outcomes.
Does Council even listen to the input of its citizenry?
Balancing input and perspectives is part of the decision making process. Providing decision makers with input from public engagement is part of the information that goes into the decision making process.
Why bother if the City doesn't change its plans to serve mature communities better?
We are working on consistency to ensure reporting on feedback and how feedback was considered is part of the public engagement process. Showing how input influenced a project or decision is important to improving trust and we want to continue to improve in this area.
Is anybody actually paying attention?  Most of the time, I feel like I am wasting my time by trying to get involved in something.
We are paying attention and are working on consistency with reporting to ensure feedback and how feedback was considered is included. Showing how input influenced a project or decision is important to improving trust and we want to continue to improve in this area.
Public Engagement Techniques and Promotion
Will there be an online option to view conferences and have your say in a comments section?

Can there be options to respond to reports in comments or social media?
We have live streamed several public events on Facebook where you can comment. You can access past videos on the City’s Facebook page. If you have comments on a report or event, please contact the project team using the contact information on the project webpage.
I feel that the city has really improved the awareness of public engagement, but I often still find out too late when meetings are being held or information is being publicized.  Why is there no (or little) media advertising of upcoming information sessions or opportunities to engage?
We strive to promote in-person public engagement opportunities two weeks in advance of the event and provide online opportunities to provide comment in addition whenever possible. A mixture of promotion including social media, newspaper advertising, and posters are used to reach as many as possible. We also notify the media about public engagement opportunities through news releases.
A webinar after the fact would be helpful. I work rotating shifts so I find it hard to attend things in person. A recording over slides would be nice to see. Something like that with plans. You can hear citizen concerns and explanations from planners/counsellors/etc.
Recognizing the different ways members of the public want to engage and scheduling limitations, incorporating webinar-style engagement is something we would like to try in the near future. In the past, we have live streamed in-person events and have posted those after the fact. Online surveys and engagement is another option for those who cannot attend events in person.
I want to know what percentage of people are getting involved. In the week 2 results you said "most of you" which should be read as "most respondents". So 105 people responded to the second summer question. How many people was the question sent to? If decisions are being based on the people who respond, is that fair?
We have over 5,400 newsletter recipients and the last newsletter was opened by 2,169 recipients.

In each public engagement report and summary, participation numbers are provided. We use a variety of engagement approaches for each project to reach the most participants possible. In some cases, we use statistically relevant research to use scientific results to be considered as part of decision making. When statistically relevant results are not collected, results represent a general sense of priorities and input for consideration.
There are community newsletters like Transcona Views, The Herald and others.  Put agenda and dates location in them.  Some people still do not have email.
Using a variety of approaches towards promoting opportunities to engage is important, and local newsletters is a great way to inform those who may not get their information online.
My question would be to understand the interplay of participating in public engagement activities in general vs. communication with my City Councillor - and how both might be improved.
Engagement results are posted publicly online and appended to reports for Council consideration, when applicable. Breaking out results in terms of ward is not something we have undertaken yet, but that information could be provided for City-wide initiatives where postal code information is collected.
How do you decide which City of Winnipeg projects have public engagement? It's great to see the City interested in engaging with us Winnipeggers but is there such a thing as over-engaged?
The City has a number of projects happening at any given time and we want to be aware of participant exhaustion. The Office of Public Engagement in the Customer Services and Communications Department is developing a policy for public engagement for Council approval to better define when we should be engaging the public.
Can the city create a development hearing notification system where residents can be made aware electronically of developments proposed in their area?
The City is currently working on the development application notification review, including investigating email notification as part of notifying the public about development applications hearings.
Initiatives and general questions
How are environmental concerns being incorporated into local building projects?

When will the data on air quality / ambient air temperature and trees that the city is collecting be put on an easily understood website for use by community and city planners:https://data.winnipeg.ca/ Parks/Tree-Inventory-Map/xyma- gm38      
https://data.winnipeg.ca/ Organizational-Support- Services/Air-Quality/f58p-2ju3
I would like more information on how to use this data.
The Climate Action Plan is currently in the last phases of development and will be put forward for Council consideration. The plan will develop a vision and targets, including building-related targets.

The links you provided are from the Open Data portal. The Open Data Portal hasvideos and direction on the basics about interacting with the data site.
I want a High Level comprehensive overview - which allows me to drill down on specific issues.
For example, how much tax do I pay ? how do I pay that tax? and how does that tax budget reconcile to city spending?

Open source data can help make this happen.
The Assessment and Taxation Self Service Menu may be of interest to you. There is a “My Properties” account log in option.

You may also be interested in the City’s Open Data Portalor the Open Budget tool.
How do I ask a question about city upkeep and things going on?
If you are interested in upkeep in a particular area, please contact 311 to find out more. They will provide you with aunique reference number for the request if service is required.
Why too many pan-handlers on every corner even on red light?
You may be interested in an initiative announced on August 3, 2018 - Mayor and Community Organizations Partner to Address and Reduce Unsafe Panhandling
I do! If I have a public improvement question (There's a park near our house that could use a safety improvement) how do I address that or get it answered? Even to run a capital or general improvement campaign for new sandbox toys or whatever.
If you have a question about a particular park, please contact 311. Another option is to contact the ward Councillor if you have a suggestion for improvements. 
What happened to the walking bridge between the U of M and St. Vital? 
A crossing between the University of Manitoba and St. Vital over the Red River is included in the City’s Transportation Master Plan and in the Pedestrian and Cycling Strategies. The University of Manitoba / River Park South Connection was recommended to be considered as a new crossing to better accommodate pedestrian and cyclist mobility throughout Winnipeg.

Engagement Updates
Adjustable bike lane curbs pilot complete.
Starting the week of August 21, 2017, the City of Winnipeg ran a nine-month technical trial of adjustable bike lane curbs on existing bike lanes. The pilot is now complete. 

A public engagement report is now available under the documents tab. Thank you to the 347 people who provided feedback through an online survey available on this project page between August 21, 2017 and June 1, 2018. In both pilot locations (Sherbrook Street and Bannatyne Avenue), respondents using all modes of transportation (driving, cycling, and walking) expressed increased comfort when passing through areas with adjustable curbs.

New Opportunities for Engagement
Question of the Week 3
Last summer, your answers to our Questions of the Week gave us guidance on where to focus on improving engagement and we want to hear from you again.
 
Question 3: Do you have any questions about getting involved?

Question of the Week 2 Results
We received 105 responses to the second summer question of the week: Have you read a public engagement report or summary before? Thank you for taking the time to respond and provide guidance on what you want out of public engagement reporting. 
 
Most of you (70%) have read a public engagement summary at least once or twice.  One thing is clear: you are interested in knowing how input was used. The most popular elements to improve public engagement reporting were showing how public feedback influenced the project (80%), followed by next steps (78%), and simple and concise (70%). Other suggested improvements to reporting included quotes and verbatim responses, maps, and number of participants.


We also received additional comments about reporting and questions we would like to address:

Quote
Response
Timely distribution of reports after engagement is appreciated - if it is too long after input was sought - one can't remember as much.
Timely follow up is important. If final recommendations are not available in soon after the engagement, an interim follow up with participants should be incorporated into the plan. 
Important for public engagement summaries to be provided back to the communities consulted. Not just made publicly available online, but made available in the community, too.
This is an interesting distinction you are making. We often follow up with the list of participants who asked for updates, but we will look at exploring other ways of making the information available in the community. Thank you!
It would be very interesting for the city to arrange meetings with high school students - from various schools - in order to receive their feedback on readability & enjoyment of city reports.
That is a great idea! Public engagement can benefit from input from all perspectives and ages. Reaching out to students and teachers is something we intend to explore further. 
If you mean all the stuff that was sent out last summer over the Ruby/Banning bike path, then yes I got all the stuff starting in the Spring and then followed it through the entire year. I haven't heard anything at all this year though. I like the idea and support it, I'd just like to know what was decided and when it's going ahead.
Thank you or your participation in the Wolseley to West Alexander Walk Bike project. Therecommended design is available on the project website. The City is now in the process of reviewing the project to determine how it fits with other City priorities and future budget considerations.
Need to expand reach by using social media to post notice of events, gather feedback and share results. Email is a good option to start but the reach needs to be much greater.
Thank you for those ideas on expanding our reach! We often use social media to promote events and public engagement opportunities, and we are looking into ways to include social media polls and feedback collections as part of engagement processes. 
It helps to have information about how the particular project fits into the bigger picture - how the project relates to other projects and community plans.
That's a great point. Incorporating "connections to other projects" and "connections to plans" is certainly something to invest time into in the future so everyone is aware of the bigger picture context. 
I want to read something simple and short in bullet points: What is this about What has been done (research, feedback, etc.) What is going to be done and what does it mean for me (money, taxes, etc.)
 
I don't read them because they are long and full of details I would rather check individually if interested. A summary with detailed sections on the points would be better for ME, not everyone;-)
Public engagement reports may not appeal to everyone, which is why we often shorten a report into a 1-2 page summary document. Going even further by pulling a few key bullet points to incorporate on the webpage may be something to implement on a consistent basis for those who would like a snapshot of the engagement process. Thank you!
Citizens encouraged to get involved on Boards and Commissions

Winnipeg Free Press Aug. 02 2018
 
A woman who found more than a dozen dead birds near a Maples-area pond isn't buying the city's explanation that they died from people feeding them "mouldy bread."

Albina Hurley said she and her seven-year-old daughter were walking Sunday at the corner of Keewatin Street and Adsum Drive when they discovered about eight dead birds scattered around the pond. She placed a 311 call to report it Monday.

They returned to find even more. By Tuesday afternoon, she counted 13 dead birds — mostly ducks and some geese — and could see what looked like remains of more.

"I just thought something's not right here. I don't know if they were poisoned or if something is wrong with the water," said Hurley.

She said she spoke Wednesday morning with a worker from the city's water and waste department who told her there were five or six dead birds per day at that pond at some points last year, but tests showed their deaths were from things they ingested.

By Tuesday afternoon, Hurley counted 13 dead birds and could see what looked like remains of more. (John Woods / Winnipeg Free Press)
"He (the city worker) said they'd go pick up the birds but that it's most likely not the water. It's from people feeding them stuff like mouldy bread," Hurley said, noting the worker brushed off her question about the birds being poisoned.

"I said to the guy, 'Is that how they die when they eat mouldy bread?' Some of them were already decaying and had maggots on them, some of them looked like they just died and we saw a few birds that just didn't look well."

She said she saw a bird on Tuesday that appeared to be a pigeon that was having trouble breathing as it sat on the grass.

"I went up to him and touched him on the back but he didn't move but was breathing really heavy. We came back a few minutes later and he had fallen over, and he was gone (dead)," she said.

"We saw a goose sitting beside another one (goose) because he passed away. That was just so heartbreaking. That must have been his mate and he wouldn't leave him."

The dead birds had been removed on Wednesday morning.

What appears to be construction garbage litters the shores of the pond. (John Woods / Winnipeg Free Press)
Ken Allen, a spokesman from the City of Winnipeg, said signs are posted at this pond and others to discourage feeding of waterfowl.

"There have been issues of bird mortality around this pond and other retention ponds in the past and in some cases these may be related to feeding of the waterfowl and the types of food which are being left for waterfowl. The City reports large die-offs of birds at ponds to Manitoba Sustainable Development. The Province would be able to provide more information on how they investigate disease related to bird die-offs," he said in an emailed statement.

A spokesman for Manitoba Sustainable Development said there was not yet enough information for a comment.

"The province is aware of the situation and is investigating," the spokesman stated in an email.

Hurley said she also discovered a Canada goose with a broken leg at the Keewatin-Adsum pond so she contacted Choo Rosenbloom, who operates the website www.lovecanadageese.com that she created with her late husband, Earl, to advocate for and protect Canada geese.

The two women caught the injured goose on Tuesday afternoon — it is now with Wildlife Haven where it is being treated — and together counted all the dead birds they could see.

"I just thought something's not right here. I don't know if they were poisoned or if something is wrong with the water," said Hurley. (John Woods / Winnipeg Free Press)
"I'm very concerned because that's too many deaths in one pond," said Rosenbloom, who regularly visits ponds around the city to check on the geese. "Where I live, we have a pond about five times the size of that one and I've never seen 13 or 18 dead birds in one go. I walk the ponds a lot and it's quite common to see one or two dead birds but you get to 13, you have to wonder what's going on."

Rosenbloom said another concern is the numerous household waste items, such as milk cartons, food wrappers, plastics and construction waste such as bricks and wood planks, littering parts of the Keewatin-Adsum pond shoreline.

"Water and waste is blaming people feeding mouldy bread and junk on the deaths of these birds. Mouldy bread isn't going to kill them this fast," said Rosenbloom. "The pond is filthy, so it's pointing the finger at the city. The city hasn't been cleaning up. It's always easy to blame the people. That's the trashiest pond I've seen in the city."

Rosenbloom said she wants the province to test the water and perform a necropsy on one or more of the birds to find out what killed them.

Hurley said she is worried about what caused the deaths of the birds from safety and humanitarian standpoints.

"My daughter cried over the dead ones," Hurley said. "She wanted us to pick them up but I said we just couldn't. We don't know what happened to them."
