DIY Winnipeg: coming together to fix the city's problems
I'm really proud to have an opinion piece up at the CBC! It was posted online late Friday afternoon, so not many people saw it before it just became part of another news cycle. What I meant about gaining grassroots involvement in Winnipeg is not that everybody go out and fix the potholes themselves. However, my hope is that educated and intelligent people try to help fix city problems by offering city officials suggestions, help and expertise rather than throw up their hands after electing these folks to political office.
(We've got a long winter ahead--so maybe we can use the time to come up with better ways to fix infrastructure?!)
Stay warm...it's woolly weather now. For all my knitting, weaving, spinning,crocheting (etc) readers, check out this cool website, Wovember, for more warmth and fibery goodness this month.
Last but not least, if you're feeling cold now that frost has settled in here in Manitoba, remember, you can always knit yourself a sweater! :)
