Brad Wall not ready to answer Regina's stadium cash request
Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall says a number of questions still need to be answered before he can give an answer to a request by the city of Regina for the province to contribute $230 million towards a new stadium and related development.
The city said it needed an answer about provincial participation by May 31, to meet its timelines for a project.
On Thursday, Wall said the province is looking for more information.
"'There's a lot of questions that remain unanswered in terms of the exact project that we're talking about," Wall said. "The facility itself, the role of all the parties. The role of the private sector."
Wall did not close the door on provincial participation, and said the government is interested in supporting something different and new.
"We know that the status quo's not on," Wall said. "But we need the questions answered before we can even kick it a little further down the road in terms of decision-making."
The city of Regina has proposed a new stadium to be built at Evraz Place, not far from the existing city-owned Mosaic Stadium.
