NDP Provincial Capital Commission Critic Nicole Sarauer has asked the Standing Committee on Public Accounts to convene at the earliest opportunity to examine the Provincial Auditor’s report on the controversial Brandt project in Wascana Park.

“The people of Regina and the province deserve answers as to why this project was so badly mishandled,” Sarauer said. “To get those answers, we need to fully canvas all the issues that were raised in the Provincial Auditor’s report, as well as those not covered due to its narrow scope.”

In a letter to the Chair and Deputy Chair of the Committee, Sarauer requested that the Committee convene “at the earliest opportunity” to review Chapter 10 of the Auditor’s report, which found that there were many instances when the Sask. Party-dominated Provincial Capital Commission did not follow appropriate procedures or keep appropriate documentation when approving commercial projects in Wascana Park. 

“The Sask. Party would prefer to bury this report and not address any of the issues it leaves unresolved,” Sarauer said. “The public deserves to know how and why this government rewrote the rules, took over the board, and gave their friends a sweetheart deal to build an office building in the people’s park.”
