“This process has been deeply flawed from the start, and a simple fact remains: one of the Sask. Party’s largest donors should not be allowed to build a for-profit commercial office building in Wascana Park.

“The Sask. Party can’t have it both ways: either proposed developments must comply with the Wascana Centre Master Plan, or this project goes ahead in its current form. If the Provincial Capital Commission takes the need for public consultations seriously and ensures that any development is fully compliant with the five pillars of the Wascana Centre Master Plan, then that means we’re back to the design phase. That design of a new home for CNIB should be informed by meaningful public consultations to ensure that any development in the park enhances this beautiful public space, instead of opening up for commercial uses and private profit.

“In the meantime, the Public Accounts Committee is meeting on February 26 to examine the Auditor’s report, which found significant flaws with the approval process. The Sask. Party should scrap this project outright, but if they had any interest in doing due diligence instead of ploughing ahead to help their donor, they would have held off on approving until the committee has had the chance to ask questions of the Auditor.”
