ON WATER PARK DEAL COLLAPSING

Fort Rouge Coun. Jenny Gerbasi, who voted against the water park, says the city now has an opportunity to build a more inclusive aquatic facility -- or at least place the potential tourist attraction downtown. "We've taken money from rapid transit, put it into a water park and now we're nowhere further ahead," she said. "We still haven't spent the money from 2004. Where's the social benefit? This should be spent on recreation that's accessible to everyone." April 29, 2009 Winnipeg Free Press
