2014 Winnipeg Election Candidate Survey

October 07, 2014
2014 Winnipeg Election Candidate Survey

Back in early September we sent around a short survey to each candidate running for mayor or a city council seat.

Recognizing that council candidates are faced with tons of surveys, questionnaires and other requests from the public, we purposely kept our survey short –just six questions.

Below is a table summarizing the questions we asked and the responses we received. In some cases we received clear-cut “yes” or “no” answers while in other cases the responses were a bit less clear...hence why some have an asterisk beside their response. However, the best way to get a feel for how candidates responded to the survey is to go through each response yourself and review any notes candidates many included to clarify their positions.

Please note that some candidates emailed back responses in text form rather than filling out the original survey and sending it in. Thus, you’ll want to view the original survey to match up the questions with their responses – click here to view the original survey.
