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.
