Council mulls installing CCTV cameras in Winnipeg to catch illegal dumpers
Coun. Ross Eadie and Coun. Devi Sharma table motion to look into cost of installing cameras
Two Winnipeg city councillors want to install closed-circuit cameras in the city to catch people illegally dumping garbage.
The councillors said illegal dumping is on the rise in Winnipeg, and charges against dumpers are extremely difficult to lay without visual evidence.
The motion calls for the city to cost-out a two-year pilot program that would see CCTV cameras installed.
The motion didn't say how many cameras are being proposed or where they would be installed.
