I am PUMPED to be a part of Jane’s Walk this year! There are over 20 happening in the City with North End Community Renewal Corporation hosting the one in my hood. I get to act as host of the walk, taking anyone who wants to (its free) down Selkirk Avenue sharing our hopes and dreams for the future. We’ll include business development, youth led projects, the arts, the new Merchant’s Corner and more!! Tune into CBC Radio 89.3fm in Winnipeg Sunday morning May 4 at about 8:40 AM to catch my interview with Terry Macleod.
