Councillor Wong Says Mayor's Comments Are "Selfish"

Councillor Duncan Wong continued his vocal opposition of Mayor Dennis Fenske on social media yesterday.


Wong took to Facebook, saying that Mayor Fenske was being 'selfish' when he spoke about Minister Blaine Pedersen and the Mining Community Reserve Fund at City Council on Monday.


Councillor Wong said that Fenske is "making life harder for the next Mayor and Council" and that he is "burning bridges rather than building them".

Wong is arguably the most vocal member of what he has called teh 'opposition' on City Council. He recently voted against against asking the Association of Manitoba Municipalities to lobby the Province to amend the Mining Tax Act and make it easier to understand.


The comments yesterday came from his account, though he has used his "Duncan Wong City Councillor" page to challenge Mayor Fenske in the past.
