Statement from Mayor Sam Katz
Released: 12:04 p.m.

NEWS @ A GLANCE:

As Winnipeggers are aware, this Sunday, November 20th, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers will host our long-time eastern rivals, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, in the Eastern Final. (for more details, please read the full media release below)

WINNIPEG - November 18, 2011 - As Winnipeggers are aware, this Sunday, November 20th, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers will host our long-time eastern rivals, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, in the Eastern Final. This Sunday's CFL semi-final will be a bittersweet historic event in our city as this will also be the final game ever played at Canad Inns Stadium in Winnipeg.

As an immense fan of our Blue and Gold, I have unwavering confidence in the entire Winnipeg Blue Bomber team under coach Paul LaPolice's leadership, and I proudly announce I have made a wager with Hamilton Mayor Bob Bratina that when the Bombers repeat history and defeat the Ticats as they did back in 2001, a donation in the amount of $360 will be made to my charity of choice – KidSport Manitoba - so more Winnipeg youth can get involved in sports and reach their athletic dreams. In the unlikely event that the Ticats experience an early Christmas miracle, a donation in the same amount will be made to Mayor Bratina's charity of choice – Operation Santa Claus – in memory of Jimmy Lomax.

As Mayor, on behalf of The City of Winnipeg, to the entire Winnipeg Blue Bombers team of players, managers and coaches, I congratulate you on an incredible season so far and thank you for the decades of memories all of us share with family and friends within the walls of Canad Inns Stadium.

Bring it Home!

Update on inspections of City arenas
Released: 4:24 p.m.

NEWS @ A GLANCE:

The City is providing an update to citizens on the inspection and monitoring of City owned and operated arenas. (for more details, please read the full media release below)

WINNIPEG - November 18, 2011 - The City is providing an update to citizens on the inspection and monitoring of City owned and operated arenas.

In addition to the recent confirmation of the presence of mould at Maginot and Bertrand arenas, testing has now confirmed the presence of mould at St. Vital and Roland Michener arenas.

As a precaution, Maginot Arena was closed to the public on November 3, when City officials noticed stains developing on the wood ceiling. The facility remains closed until the end of December 2011 for mould remediation.

Assessments of Bertrand, St. Vital and Roland Michener arenas by an an environmental consultant have determined that airborne spore levels of the predominant mould species were either at or below typical summertime outdoor mould levels in Winnipeg.

Based on this advice, Bertrand, St. Vital and Roland Michener arenas remain open for programming.

The City continues its enhanced indoor air-quality management and visual inspection programs in City owned and operated facilities.

For further information on mould, please visit the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA) website www.wrha.mb.ca , call Health Links at 204-788-8200 or 1-888-315-9257 or visit http://www.hc-sc.gc.ca/ewh-semt/pubs/air/mould-moisissure-eng.php.
