Judy Wasylycia-Leis' campaign to become the next mayor of Winnipeg received a significant boost today when she received the endorsement of the United Fire Fighters of Winnipeg.
"I am humbled and honoured to receive the support of the United Fire Fighters of Winnipeg," said Wasylycia-Leis. "Every person in this community owes you and owes your families a debt of gratitude. Your work is hard, dangerous and essential to the city we all love."
The announcement made at the Fire Fighters Museum of Winnipeg comes 30 days before Winnipeggers go to the polls to select their new mayor.
"Winnipeggers have a clear choice. They will be able to decide between a mayor who will protect their services or cut them, or unite their city or divide it," said Wasylycia-Leis. "I am energized that I will have firefighters at my side over the next four weeks. True to their professional calling, they are here when they are needed most."
