Regina vs. Winnipeg

In the November/December 2007 issue, The Taxpayer highlighted the tax-cutting, red tape destroying measures of Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz. That had Regina Mayor Pat Fiacco asking when we were going to feature how the Queen City has made itself better. Fiacco hired an outside consultant to recommend ways to make delivery of city services more efficient. It also went to citizens to get feedback. The results, according to the mayor, are that the city saves $3-$4 million each year. They even hired the consultant to become city manager.

So, when Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz came to town, it seemed a good time for good-natured banter as to who ran their cities better. The mayors weren't biting, except to say something we've heard them say a lot lately...
