Saskatchewan Party leadership hopeful Gord Wyant says he intends to find out more about the Global Transportation Hub land transaction, and intends to hold a public inquiry into the province’s role in the multi-million dollar land deal.
Wyant committed to a public inquiry examining the establishment of the GTH if he’s elected party leader adding he’s heard many concerns regarding the deal, and says there are too many questions about it.
“I quickly came to the conclusion that the only way that we’re going to clear the air with respect to the GTH – and the issues the people of Saskatchewan have – is to have a full public inquiry,” Wyant explained. “Investigate all the matters, give the [conflict of interest] commissioner the power of subpoena, to compile witnesses, to compile testimony [and] to compile documents.”
Last year, Provincial Auditor Judy Ferguson found there was no evidence of conflicts of interest, or indications of fraud or wrongdoing by the GTH management or Board of Directors.
