5 people in the hospital after collision

Last Friday, December 7th a scary collision happened near the intersection of Pembina Highway and Ducharme Avenue in Winnipeg, five young people were injured and delivered to the nearby hospital just after noon.

Four of the people injured in the collision, including the driver, were transported to a nearby hospital and have since been treated and released.

Police say all five were traveling southbound in a white, four-door sedan.

The fifth individual was transported in critical condition, but their status has since been upgraded to stable condition. Police say a second vehicle, described as a black, two-door sedan, may have been traveling with the white sedan, and it later stopped at the scene of the crash.

The investigation still continues, officers are working at the scene with the pieces of evidence to determine if the speed was a factor in the accident. Also, police ask for public help, you or someone you know were driving by the scene of a crash at or shortly after the incident, please contact your local police department, possibly the dash camera the was recording at the time might help with the investigation.

Also to remind you, the Pembina Highway will be completely closed to traffic between Jubilee Avenue and Stafford Street for back-to-back weekends in December, beginning Friday.

The closure is to complete some necessary work on the second stage of the Southwest Rapid Transitway, specifically demolishing an out-of-service CN rail bridge. Round-the-clock construction will take place between 8 p.m. Friday and 4 a.m. Monday.

Pedestrian and cyclist access will be maintained by a shuttle service, with two pick-up and drop-off points: north of the underpass on the east side of Pembina Highway opposite Harrow Street, and south of the underpass on the east side at the Jubilee Avenue yield onto Pembina Highway.

Let’s be patient and hope road construction workers will finish all the projects soon and that will make our city a better place to drive and live in!

Winnipeg Residential Water And Waste Fees
The City of Winnipeg is in the process of debating an increase to water and waste rates. To understand the impact this potential increase could have, it’s important to look at a few factors. First, we will analyze how these fees are structured and what they fund. Then, we will look at why an increase is being proposed in the first place. Finally, it will be helpful to compare our fees to the fees in other Canadian cities, though this can be trickier than y...

We’re going to take a deep dive into the Southwest Transitway and then we’re going to take a look at some of the propo...

Volunteers are really making a difference in helping those who are in need. We are talking homeless people, poor, sick, disabled, children without parents…, the list is endless, so each volunteer, each day and each hour they give and provide the service, really helps those people and the cities to stay cleaner and a better place to live in. Some Winnipeggers living in homeless camps just outside of the downtown core say they prefer the autonomy of the camp...
