Salaries and benefits at the City of Winnipeg shot up a staggering $34
million last year, a 5.9% jump in one year, according to the city’s 2009
financial report.

This city is certainly not a model of efficiency - let's see if any candidates have realistic proposals on how to cut the excess.

I think the problem for all candidates beside the mayor is the information required to dig into what exactly is costing so much is deeply buried and hard to obtain for anyone not currently in the civic gov.


So it would be hard for them to say what should be cut. AND I can damn near guarantee you Judy will NOT be advising any cuts since she has already come on record saying more jobs in some areas should be added.

The number of employees has shot up too, in the last few years. This, dispite contracting out.

or is that because of more contracts not being awarded that were awarded in the past?
