The frontrunners in the Winnipeg mayoral race made their final pitches on the last full day of campaigning on Tuesday.
Gord Steeves made his third stop during the campaign at the site in the Parker Lands where phase two of BRT is set to run, to remind voters why he believes Winnipeg can't afford the mega project.
Robert-Falcon Ouellette shook hands with people at The Forks, urging voters to vote with their heart and not vote strategically.
Brian Bowman had an opposite message, telling voters a vote for Gord Steeves, his rival on the centre right, is a vote for Judy Wasylycia-Leis.
And Wasylycia-Leis stood in front of her campaign office to attack her closest opponent in the polls, Brian Bowman, accusing him of not costing out his election promises.
A poll on Monday had Bowman and Wasylycia-Leis in a neck-and-neck race.
CTV Winnipeg hosted an election forum Tuesday evening which saw Brian Bowman, Michel Fillion, Paula Havixbeck, Robert-Falcon Ouellette, David Sanders, Gord Steeves and Judy Wasylycia-Leis face off on a range of issues, including infrastructure, taxes the the future of Winnipeg.
