Free Press: Reduce road spending, save the trees urges city coalition
Reduce road spending, save the trees urges city coalition (Winnipeg Free Press, November 21, 2019)
Trees Please, a coalition of more than a dozen neighbourhood associations and community organizations, lobbies for a minimum $7.61 million increase to the City of Winnipeg Urban Forestry department.
“We know that ‘hard choices’ means budget decisions that may not be politically popular. That is why we, as citizens of Winnipeg, are giving you permission to spend money differently. Roads can wait a little longer; our public trees cannot,” the letter states.
