The Global Transportation Hub (GTH) is back in the news as the new minister in charge, Don Morgan, starts looking at its future.
He says the strategic plans and goals for the facility west of Regina are always evolving and being redeveloped.
Future opportunities may also include the City of Regina as a possible partner.
“We have services agreements with the City of Regina and a lot of people that work at GTH would live in the city. I’m sure there would be a lot of synergies there,” Morgan said in a scrum at the legislature Wednesday.
But so far there have been no formal or informal talks on what that would look like.
“Nobody’s said would you be interested in buying this, formally or informally,” Regina Mayor Michael Fougere confirmed. “There’ve been no formal discussions in any way from government to government or administration to administration.”
But when asked whether he would consider such a proposal or partnership with the GTH, Fougere was open to have that discussion.
“If there is a proposal we would look at that proposal and look at it on its merits, is it viable, what exactly is it,” Fougere said. “My administration would look at it, what are the cost benefits, what would it mean for taxpayers.”
The GTH hasn’t sold any new lots in two years and Morgan hopes that will change in the future.
