WINNIPEG — The latest candidate to put her name forward into Winnipeg’s mayoral race says most citizens don’t want to see Portage and Main opened to pedestrian traffic.

Jenny Motkaluk launched her mayoral campaign on Monday in St. Boniface, saying her priorities include fixing infrastructure, preventing crime and growing the economy.

“(Mayor Brian) Bowman’s Portage and Main legacy project matters because it’s a symbol of how an accidental mayor lost sight of our city’s real priorities,” said Motkaluk.

The business consultant also identified three priority areas should we focus on if given the mandate: improving Winnipeg Transit and traffic policies, community pride and better service delivery.

Motkaluk will be rolling out additional policy announcements throughout the campaign leading up to October’s election.

She will officially launch her campaign tonight at 6:30 p.m. at Canad Inns Polo Park.
