PARKADE SALE FUNDS REMAIN DOWNTOWN

Councillor Gerbasi has repeatedly asked Mayor Sam Katz about plans for the parkade-sale proceeds from the sale of the downtown Winnipeg Square Parkade in question period. It seems persistence does pay off! The current plan fulfils the mayor's promise, said Fort Rouge Coun. Jenny Gerbasi. "I am pleased today all the money... will be invested on the downtown," said Gerbasi, a critic of the parkade sale. "They sold an asset, they needed to reinvest that money downtown and they've listened. And I appreciate it." Winnipeg Free Press, March 15th, 2011
