Progressive Conservative leader Hugh McFadyen made improving the St. James Civic Centre one of his campaign commitments on Friday.
McFadyen said the PCs will invest $3.9 million into the centre to include a second ice rink, provide a new home to the St. James Assiniboia 55+ Centre, and add 30 daycare spaces.
“This is an example of how we can work constructively with stakeholders to make significant improvements to community infrastructure,” McFadyen said.
The City of Winnipeg would put in $300,000 toward the project for a total of $4.2 million.
