David Prokopchuk, the PC Candidate in the Saskatoon Meewasin By-election is calling for Brad Wall to stop hiding evidence on the Regina Global Transportation Hub (GTH) scandal.
A February 8th, 2017, CBC report shows proof Saskatchewan Highways had appraised land at $30,000.00 to $35,000.00 per acre which was later purchased by the GTH for $103,000.00 per acre. The CBC report relies on the information from a former Highways Land Branch Director who quit in frustration after the GTH purchase.
CBC reports “someone, whose name was redacted in obtained documents, was arguing that the land was worth closer to $50,000.00 an acre.”
The PC Party discovered Brad Wall signed the order to purchase the land for $103,000.00 per acre and turned that information over to the CBC in 2015. Prokopchuk said, “Brad Wall has a lot of explaining to do.” Prokopchuk demands Brad Wall reveal the name of the person arguing for a higher price.
Prokopchuk asks, “Why has Wall’s government obliterated the name of the person telling the Highway Department to pay more than the appraisal. “
Prokopchuk said, “The voters are entitled to know if the hidden person worked for Minister Bill Boyd or was he a representative of land speculators?”
