NDP pushes for consultations on Wascana development, moves to reset the process

Today in the Public Accounts Committee, Sask. Party MLAs voted down an NDP recommendation to reject the proposed Brandt build in Wascana Park. 

“The Auditor made very clear that the process hasn’t been followed for this project, and meaningful public consultations are needed before it should go ahead,” said NDP MLA and PAC member Vicki Mowat. “Once again, the Sask. Party is using its majority to force through an unpopular project that benefits one of their biggest donors — just like they did to shut down our questions about what went down at the GTH. This project simply should not go ahead as presented.”

The NDP recommendation, which the Sask. Party members all voted against, reads as follows:

That the Public Accounts Committee recommends the Government of Saskatchewan reject the proposed Brandt building in Wascana Park and restart the process from the beginning.

The recommendation is being tabled on the same day City of Regina councillors are putting forward a motion calling for more consultations for the Brandt project.

“This is just the latest instance of the Sask. Party quashing consultations and steamrolling opposition to a commercial office building in Wascana Park to benefit one of their biggest donors. This government is letting down everyone who cares about the integrity of our public parks.”
