Portage and Main to remain closed after plebiscite


Winnipeggers have had their say on whether they think the barricades should come down at Portage and Main in a plebiscite that quickly became one of the main, if not the main, issues of the general election.

While a plebiscite is different than a referendum in that the results are non-binding, re-elected mayor Brian Bowman has said he will honour the results of the plebiscite.
