There may be research in Saskatoon, but I understand the protein supercluster would involve the construction of very significant processing plants that would extract protein and other ingredients from peas, including on in the Regina area.

proposal involving Regina-based AGT Foods and Ingredients has been shortlisted for the $950-million federal Innovation Superclusters Initiative.

Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Ralph Goodale was in the city Wednesday to announce the shortlisted supercluster applicant from Saskatchewan. AGT Foods, founded by Murad Al-Katib, is one of largest

Its the Liberal way. Tax successful businesses at high rates and give back some of it to your pet projects. The Government knows best how to invest. What could go wrong?

There will be a federal election soon; Goodale needs to line up his ducks. (He's finally going to lose too.)

The provincial Sask party was half liberal to start with... They're ALL the same thing. All parties regardless of stripes pick winners and losers, prop up various industries with tax breaks or funding for research & development, and fleece/abuse the market position of crown corporations. All of them do it and it rarely turns out for the best for any party.

That said I highly doubt Goodale will lose. If he was able to win with the highly lacklustre Dion and Ignatieff at the helm, it feels like hell have that seat until retirement. After he goes, I wouldn't be surprised to see it flip to a different colour though.

I don't want to get too off-topic, but I would also wager that he'll win in the next election if he runs again (which seems likely). However, I would also bet that Erin Weir will lose his seat, assuming he is not forced out by the NDP before then. I'm not commenting on the veracity of the allegations against him, but he faced an uphill battle regardless of his own personal circumstances. He squeaked by in 2015 on the back of redistricting and an anti-Harper wave, and I don't think he'll be able to do it again, since elections are mostly about parties now, and less about individual candidates (except for the star ones like Goodale).

Once Goodale resigns, I would expect his seat to turn Conservative, likely, or at the very least be competitive between Conservative and NDP, with the Liberal vote being nearly destroyed.

Soooooo back to construction....

Is anything open in Acre 21 in the Greens? Structure up yet at new Costco?

Haven’t heard any rumours on what will go in new commercial development on Rochdale, east of Walmart.

Hoping something else will go in near Diefenbaker behind hotel.

Wondering who will buy existing Costco and what that will be redeveloped into.

I drove past Acre 21 and Costco sites on the weekend. Nothing open yet at Acre 21. The Co-op gas bar looks like it should be open in a few weeks. Save On Foods is coming along but I would imagine it is still a couple of months away. No steel going up yet for the new Costco. It appears that they are still doing foundation work.

They are all guilty, but Liberals are really bad. They love to pick winners and losers in the economy. The Sask Party at least had a policy against this but they have been pretty good at paying lip service to it and finding ways to get around their own policy in "special cases"..

I don't know exactly, but U of R, Alliance Grain and many other Regina groups are involved. EC Dev Regina says it will be big for the GRA.

There should be at least one major facility near Regina.

$700 million of investment.
