How to avoid the coyote cafe in downtown Winnipeg

The coyote is in downtown Manitoba’s downtown, and you might want to take extra precautions.

The coyote cafes, cafes, food trucks and restaurants in the city are in some way connected to Winnipeg’s notorious downtown mall.

But there’s an added layer of security in that area, thanks to a new law that was passed by the Manitoba Legislature last week.

Under the bill, a business owner who fails to maintain an area that is at least 10 metres from a building that is deemed to be a public gathering area is guilty of a municipal offence.

If that area is less than 10 metres, the owner of that business is liable to a fine of up to $50,000.

The owner can also be fined up to 50 per cent of the amount they spend on rent or maintenance, whichever is higher.

For businesses that don’t have a building at least 20 metres from the downtown mall, the maximum fine is $150,000 per offence.

For those businesses that have more than one building, the fine can be up to 100 per cent or more of the total cost of that building.
