Deadline stalemate jeopardizes RRC construction project

April 17, 2018

The Winnipeg Free Press states that a six-week impasse with Ottawa continues to delay a $95M construction project at Red River College. According to the Free Press, RRC suspended construction on its Innovation Centre in March when it realized that it could not complete the project by the government’s deadline of November 30th, 2018. $40M of federal funding is reportedly at risk because of the delays. The federal government tells the Free Press that it supports the Centre, but cannot justify an extension, as it would set a bad precedent for other construction projects across the country. Winnipeg Free Press
