I’ve written a few things published in the month of March.
Public spaces can build community, advocates say looks at the role of public spaces like the Elmwood Kildonans pool and the Sherbrook Pool in creating community. It features content from interviews from Friends of Sherbrook Pool organizer Marianne Cerilli and Dr. Jino Distasio from the University of Winnipeg’s Institute of Urban Studies.

Uber is not a silver bullet for Winnipeg’s taxicab issues looks at the problems with Winnipeg’s taxicab industry, particularly availability of cabs and safety concerns particularly felt by Indigenous women. It reviews the track record of Uber and other Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) to come to the conclusion that Uber is not a surefire way to improve our fee for rides market. Written before the announcement that Manitoba would enact legislation to abolish the Taxicab Board and change regulations to allow Uber, it has gained relevance with the announcement. A lot of information from a report commissioned for the Taxicab Board was used in this article.
