Winnipeggers want next mayor to crack down on crime: poll

  • Print

WINNIPEG - The candidates keep saying it and polls suggest they're right: Winnipeggers want a crackdown on crime to be the next mayor’s top priority.

A new poll – the same one that gave Mayor Sam Katz a six-point lead over challenger Judy Wasylycia-Leis yesterday – says two in five Winnipegger believe reducing crime ought to be the new mayor’s first task.

Q and A

THE QUESTION

What should the new mayor’s first priority be?

THE RESULT

Take efforts to reduce crime — 40%

Fix roads, back lanes and bridges — 32%

Spend more money on recreation and community services — 14%

Complete rapid transit corridor to the University of Manitoba — 10%

Build an new football stadium at the University of Manitoba — 2%

None of the above/don’t know/refused to answer — 4%

Another 32 per cent of those surveyed said fixing roads and bridges should be job one.

The poll, done by Leger Marketing for the Winnipeg Free Press and the CBC, surveyed 800 randomly selected Winnipeg adults between Oct. 6 and 17. The firm can say with 95 per cent certainty its results are accurate within a margin of error of 3.5 per cent.
