With tenders due in less than a month on the Valley View Centre land skirting the Wakamow River Valley, the Saskatchewan NDP is calling on the government to push pause on the sale until community and First Nations consultations can take place regarding the historical, archaeological and ecological significance of the land. 

Today the NDP was joined in the Legislature by several Moose Jaw residents concerned about the rushed sale of the former Valley View land.

"What's the rush?" asked Central Services Critic Cathy Sproule. "This land along the Wakamow River Valley is of enormous historical and ecological importance to Moose Jaw and the entire region. We've heard the concerns of Moose Jaw residents, and we think the government should slow down the process to ensure that those concerns are addressed.”
