Churchill hoping to transport his skills

Transport engineer in the running in St. Norbert-Seine River

Glenn Churchill is pledging to bring his expertise to City Hall on behalf of the residents of the St. Norbert-Seine River ward.


As a transportation engineer, infrastructure and transportation issues in the city are sharply in Churchill’s focus when he’s talking about his priorities for the ward.

"With my background as an engineer, having someone on council who understands infrastructure projects on both a local and citywide level would be invaluable," said Churchill, 50, who has four children with his wife, Barbara.


Churchill said issues such as road construction, the condition of roads, active transportation elements including bike paths and bike lanes are all on his radar.


"A big one is the South Perimeter Highway project, which will cut through the middle of the ward," he said, noting his knowledge and skills will help council "improve its due diligence on major projects, and spend our tax dollars wisely."


A former board member of Dakota Community Centre and St. Vital Minor Hockey Association, and a founding member of the River Park South Community Association, Churchill grew up in Fort Richmond and is a longtime resident of River Park South, so he has a lifelong connection to what is now the St. Norbert-Seine River ward.


"I grew up in Fort Richmond, and I went to Fort Richmond Collegiate, so I have ties to all areas of the ward, which is a diverse one," Churchill said.


"In certain areas, there is a lack of transit services, especially in the evenings and on weekends and in the middle of the day."


Churchill said there is a transit master plan that has been commissioned, which will address different aspects of transit services across the city and take around a year to complete.
