Please join us in this campaign: "Air, Water, Soil for Life”

Since our area started dealing with industrial and contamination issues, we have come to realize that the oversight we would assume was in place to protect the environment and its inhabitants is not what we thought it would be. It would seem that set-out guidelines are not necessarily monitored or enforced. Our goal is to bring together the many small groups fighting for issues that impact the three basic building blocks for life; air, water and soil.

Online Petition: "Air Water Soil for Life"

Please see below for previous work on the Marion Widening and Grade Separation
Also refer to News & Events - Marion and Archibald

The proposed projects will directly affect Happyland Park!
Help Save Happyland Park! Say NO to the Marion Widening and Grade Separation! At the Marion and Archibald intersection.

Our association realizes some change is needed in our area such as an underpass for the train and additional turning lanes at the intersection. However we feel that the current plans and design are overboard for this area and risk doing more damage than good to the area surrounding Marion and Archibald including Happyland Park. There are ways our city planners could plan more realistic solutions with smaller price tags. As their current plan stands it could range from 250 million to 500 million before the cost of 140 expropriations, as we all know city projects never stay on course with their expected budget. Help support us to encourage them to develop more realistic plans and to properly consult with the communities directly impacted by their proposed changes.

SSBRA wants to clarify that we are not against change to our neighbourhood, only that we propose a plan that is not this extensive as we do not deem it, or the cost necessary! We feel funds could be more wisely spent to benefit more areas of the city IF this was used to refurbish the whole railway system. Possibly this is the time for the city to act on incorporating our already in place train system to become our new public transportation system with stations set up throughout the city for easy access. Rather than spending more on BRT(Bus Rapid Transit) this might be a more viable long term option. Using such funds to relocate the necessary tracks outside the city rather than building over and under them. This would solve the problem at more then just one railway crossing. We welcome your thoughts and ideas on this as it really does affect all of us as residents of Winnipeg.
