Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited Winnipeg this week. Also, as a part of Prime Minister's visit, a meeting with representatives of the Ukrainian community of the Winnipeg is scheduled.
The Kildonan-Saint-Paul constituency includes part of Winnipeg and the northern outskirts of the city. This district, where about 100 thousand people live, has one of the largest concentrations of Ukrainians in Canada.
The meeting will be closed to the press. During the event, Justin Trudeau is expected to express support for MP Mariana Migaychuk, who represents the Liberal Party in the current convocation of the Canadian Parliament, and expressed her intention to run for a second term from this constituency.
Trudeau said the funding agreement would see $2.8 million from the city added to $2.5 million from the federal government to make improvements to the Winnipeg Transit vehicle fleet.
The funding that was announced by Trudeau is very important for Winnipeg transportation and infrastructure.
City authorities recognize and understand the importance of constant transport infrastructure growth and modernization to be able to satisfy the needs of Winnipeg citizens and a workforce visiting our city every day. Mayor Brian Bowman says the city transport system needs a major overhaul.
Winnipeg bus drivers safety means a lot for the city`s transportation inspectors. This is a huge plan, with a pretty high bill that the city of Winnipeg will have to pay to protect the drivers and make transit transportation safer for everyone else too. The public transportation system is a very important part of Winnipeg`s daily life, because of thousands of people use it every day to commute to work and back home, they rely on the system and people need to be able to catch that bus on time and make to work or home to their families.
