This is one I definitely won't be attending, but some may have an interest in such things so I reproduce it here. No doubt it will be a great forum for the various and vaporous candidates for Mayor to promise endless wondrous improvements. One should never forget, however, that the present state of downtown Winnipeg is the result of decades of such great "improvement" schemes. Insofar as Winnipeg has "vibrant neighbourhoods" (and yes there are some ) such things have not been the result of political gifts.
