Billboard ban continues

CITY councillors on the downtown development, heritage and riverbank management committee Monday rejected a plea from sign and advertising companies to lift the moratorium on digital billboards downtown.

A civic report says no new digital billboard has been put up downtown for 20 years.

John Hoeschen, of Zero Din Marketing Solutions, said he will again argue in favour of digital billboards for general advertisements at the next executive policy committee meeting and city council.

He said he doesn't understand how the city can allow digital billboards across the city but not downtown.

 

Full-day kindergarten a go

JOHN M. King, Strathcona, Wellington and Norquay schools will run full-day kindergarten programs in Winnipeg School Division in September.

Trustees confirmed Monday night the four will be the first full-day classes in the division.

Board chairwoman Suzanne Hrynyk said each school would have one classroom apiece with 14 to 20 students.

Some parents at the four schools have opted to leave their kids in half-day programs, she said. WSD hopes eventually both nursery and kindergarten will be full-day programs at all elementary schools in the division.
