Election Promises

ELECTION PROMISES & COMMITMENTS towards Active Transportation ‘if elected’

We now have two clear active transportation (AT) commitments from both the New Democratic Party (NDP) and the Progressive Conservative Party (PC).

Good news for Active Transportation in Election 2011 !
The NDP’s have made a clear promise to a piece of infrastructure and today (Sept. 28th) Premier Selinger verbally committed on camera to supporting development of AT ‘strategy’ and staffing.
The PC’s have put forward a clear PROVINCIAL AT commitment to paper / on the website and in their election platform.

Cordite Trail Grand Opening

Saturday, June 5th

TIME: 1:00 pm
MEET: Hamm Street and Cordite Road
MAP: Cordite Trail

Please plan to join the Transcona Trails Association opening event for The Cordite Trail located on the corner of and Ham and Cordite Road at 1:00 pm on Saturday, June 5th, 2010.

This trail follows the south bank of the Cordite Ditch, part of a dangerous Cordite Plant operation located to the east of Transcona that played an important part in Canada’s World War II efforts. Alongside this man made ditch, the Cordite Trail is now a place for hiking, cycling and walking your dog. Interpretive signs along the trail will help you learn more about this fascinating story. Look around you for clues of Transcona’s industrial history.

Today the Cordite Ditch provides an ideal environment for marsh birds, hawks and other wildlife. The bulrushes provide shelter for nesting geese and ducks. You might also see deer, rabbit or the occasional fox! Be sure to check out the Cordite Trail East Track, located by Redonda Street in East Transcona to learn more about the explosives manufacturing operation near Transcona in the early 1940s.

Transcona’s industrial history now a place for hiking. For more information, please call Gail Kaulk, President, Transcona Trails @ 222-9688.
