A safer, better, fairer … better Winnipeg.

Former Police Chief endorses Judy for Mayor

Posted on October 26th 2010

Former Winnipeg Police Chief David Cassels has endorsed Judy Wasylycia-Leis as the next mayor of Winnipeg.

Cassels said Winnipeg is overdue for a plan that will prevent crime and finally begin to reverse the city’s growing crime problem.

“Judy understands that to start making neighbourhoods safer, you actually have to start preventing crime from happening in the first place,” Cassels said.

“Judy’s plan will do that. It’s a targeted, balanced plan that will integrate the prevention tools that are missing right now.

“Wasylycia-Leis’ approach to neighbourhood foot patrols in troubled neighbourhoods is exactly what Winnipeg needs today, and her overall crime approach will help make Winnipeg’s streets safer.”

Earlier in the campaign, Wasylycia-Leis was endorsed by former Winnipeg Mayors Bill Norrie and Glen Murray.
