Paula Havixbeck would work with contractors and city staff to remove windrows from back lanes in Winnipeg if elected.
The mayoral candidate on Friday said she believes it’s one of the issues on minds of voters.
“The people of Winnipeg have had problems with windrows in back lanes for our immortal winters and I have been more aware of them and the effect since I was a councillor,” she said. “They are dangerous, rock-hard, and they trap people inside their homes as they cannot get their cars out to go to work.”
This past winter was particularly troublesome for motorists having to navigate windrows, especially in narrow back lanes where only one vehicle could pass at a time.
“This is something that Winnipeggers will be able to get behind. No longer will they be trapped at home. It is a very big deal for those residents that have to put up with it and we will find a way when I am mayor.”
