CAA Manitoba analyzed the data by road, community and municipality to present a clear picture to government officials. The full report includes a full breakdown of where each vote was cast. This report was circulated to more than 100 municipalities earlier this week.

While the results are not scientific, CAA Manitoba public and government affairs manager Liz Peters said in a news release the results are important to keep the ongoing infrastructure condition and funding discussion top of mind for everyone – especially government.
