On Tuesday, Couns. Justin Swandel (St. Norbert) and Jenny Gerbasi (Fort Rouge) asked council to reduce the increase to councillors' discretionary ward budgets by $17,600 in order to restore nearly $335,400 of funding cuts to museums and other non-profits. Couns. Swandel, Gerbasi, Ross Eadie (Mynarski), Brian Mayes (St. Vital), John Orlikow (River Heights) and Dan Vandal (St. Boniface) voted in favour of that plan, but the majority of councillors did not agree. The motion was defeated by a vote of 10-6. Incorrect information appeared in Wednesday's Free Press.
