Brad Wall Puts Iconic SGI Building Up For Sale In Regina

SGI building up for sale: Sask. Party’s fire sale continues

The Sask. Party government has put the iconic SGI building in Regina up for sale.

“The potential sale of SGI’s headquarters is yet another Sask. Party surprise, yet another public asset sell-off,” said John Nilson, NDP leader. “Putting SGI on the market raises a lot of questions for taxpayers. People are wondering if this is a sign that the Sask. Party needs another cash injection to prop up the bank accounts. The Sask. Party government owes it to Saskatchewan people to present a business case for selling a valuable asset.”

The NDP said the potential sale should have been discussed publicly before putting the SGI building on the market. SGI’s black-and-bronze building is 33-years old. It houses the head office and Regina Operations Centre for the Crown corporation.

“SGI occupies a structurally-sound, perfectly-located and purpose-built tower,” said Nilson. “It’s just common sense to consider maintaining that asset.”

The NDP has been critical of the Sask. Party’s surprising return to an agenda of privatization and sell-offs throughout the fall, which included the privatization of the profitable personal information Crown corporation, ISC.

Well why shouldn't he sell off Saskatchewan's Crown assets? After all, it's his Devine right.
