A great event unveiling the statue of Dr. Jose Rizal in Waterford Green.

 

Great to see so many community members and Terry Duguid, MP for Winnipeg South, City Councillor of Point Douglas, Vivian Armstrong Santos, City Councillor for Old Kilodonan, Devi Sharma, Malaya Marcelino, MLA for Notre Dame and the great champion of Dr. Rizal, former Point Douglas City Councillor, Mike Pagtakhan.

When Mike Pagtakhan (fellow Dakota Collegiate alumnus) left Council, I cited a verse from Filipino Independence hero Dr. Jose Rizal. I was delighted to see that same verse on the base of the statue of Rizal unveiled today, a project dear to Mike.

August 26, 2020 was a fun day on the bridge between the St. Vital and St. Boniface Wards, supporting Cool Streets Winnipeg. 

Thanks to Matt Allard and Markus Chambers for helping to fund urban beautification on 5 pedestrian bridges over the Seine River!

 

Great work by Stéphane Dorge and the Centre Culturel Franco-Manitobain!

 

I was able to check out artwork on the John Bruce Bridge while door knocking in Royalwood.

The tennis/pickleball courts at ⁦Dakota Collegiate are in use! 

In fact, I saw people playing at 7 AM.

The official opening, with co-funders Markus Chambers and Louis Riel School Division, is coming soon.

I played tennis on the new courts, with one of my sons.  All five facilities (cricket, basketball, soccer field, tennis & running track) were in use at same time.
