The federal government came with its cheque book in hand on Wednesday to fund three separate Winnipeg projects.
MP Joyce Bateman began the day by announcing $198,960 in support of the Broadway Neighbourhood Centre Inc. to fund a 24-month project to engage men and boys, aged 15-25, in ending violence against women and girls. The new project will improve the safety of women and girls in the West Broadway area of downtown Winnipeg.
Bateman later announced $50,150 for the Pembina Curling Club to improve lighting, wall restorations, and the installation of new carpet.
A few blocks away, the Fort Garry Lions Football Club received $99,520 for 36 new lights to brighten up the club’s main football field, while the existing lights will be redirected to the unlit practice field.
