About the Toba Centre-
In 2007 the Province of Manitoba announced a commitment to bring child advocacy centres to Manitoba as part of Tracia’s Trust: Phase 2 of Manitoba’s Sexual Exploitation Strategy. The first phase of developing Manitoba’s centre included creating a space for child victims and their parents/caregivers, including a child-friendly interview room, family room, and waiting room, as well as an independent, highly trained forensic interviewer.
Toba Centre for Children & Youth (formerly Snowflake Place) opened in 2013, offering this safe, neutral, family-friendly setting and in 2015, two forensic interviewers began conducting interviews of children and youth.
Scott Gillingham was first elected to Winnipeg City Council in 2014 and was re-elected in 2018. During his time on council, he has become widely respected by colleagues, department staff, stakeholders and the media. Scott’s collaborative, responsible approach has been the hallmark of his time on City Council.
Scott firmly believes that council owes it to the citizens of Winnipeg to establish a longer-term approach on council votes, with a focus towards capital projects or city service spending that increases Winnipeg attractiveness as a place to live, play, work and invest.
I am happy to announce that I am one of the fundraising committee co-chairs for Scott Gillingham's run for the Mayor of Winnipeg
