I started golfing this year and found that this was a great course to learn on.
Good condition & open course and you don’t have to have a membership like so many other courses in the city

Hello: I live in Cartier, I enjoy driving by John Blumberg Golf Course any time of the year; it always caught my attention. I enjoy playing golf there, and it is a well developed golf course, and green space.
With baseball, and soccer fields, and race track, and hotels close by, it is some what of a tourist attraction ! Thank you. Stan Breland

I'm signing because Winnipeg desperately needs more green spaces NOT less.... THe City already owns the land!! It's a no-brainer. As we are witnessing especially during the pandemic, citizens are seeking green spaces to walk.... our own Bois des Esprits is almost overrun.... Decision makers, do the right thing. Thank you!

I would like to see as much green space saved in and around the city of Winnipeg, and not simply gobbled up for development. The city released a paper indicating how much green space want to save as part of their vision. The reality is, much less usually ends up saved. I understand urban development will occur, but most new developments still are being created with a bare minimum of green space. They create rinky dink little parks to satisfy some bare minimum standard of green space, which is laughable. The Spirit forest and Hentaleff park in St Vital are examples of good and thoughtful use of urban green space, to name a few.
Large tracts of green space need to be preserved and developed as urban forests.
If Blumberg golf course is sold, for sure the wildlife corridor needs to be preserved. But also a large portion of it needs to be set aside for parkland, green recreation and "forest bathing". ie, walking in nature.

Winnipeg needs to demonstrate a commitment to mitigating climate change by conserving, not reducing suburban green space, and by supporting healthy, active living.

I feel its extremely important to not sell the John Blumberg Golf Course & Nature Corridor lands, and instead, keep these lands for nature habitat and public health & enjoyment. This precious land is an important part of our City of Winnipeg greenspace and we much keep and protect it. Thank you.
