A year ago in the Times-Herald

Funding for the new Moose Jaw hospital and further exploration into the Valley View Centre alternatives are two key items for Moose Javians in what was promised to be a ‘tight’ provincial budget. The Saskatchewan Party government has earmarked $50 million for the new regional hospital facility in this year’s budget, representing a 62.5 per cent share of the $80 million it has committed to the project. “Government has committed to the price tag. I think (the hospital) is going to be about $100 million in total and that’s going to be an 80-20 split,” finance minister Ken Krawetz told the Times-Herald Wednesday. “We’ve provided, in this budget, $50 million. There will be a further allotment with regards to the next budget.” – March 21, 2013
