WINNIPEG - Mayoral challenger Judy Wasylycia-Leis will donate her parliamentary pension to the Winnipeg Foundation if she's elected mayor next week.
Back in the spring, the former Winnipeg North MP promised to give up her $68,000 annual pension she receives based on 13 years as an elected official in Ottawa.
This afternoon, Wasylycia-Leis said if elected the Winnipeg Foundation will direct the cash toward children's programming.
She also pledged to reinstate an access co-ordinator at city hall and hire a new integrity commissioner.
She did not cite any specific situation that would require the advice of such a commissioner.
She also said she has not yet had time to sit down with the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, which has been asking to view her Ottawa expense receipts.
