uRegina VP discusses “misconceptions” around Conexus deal, announces upgrades to Darke Hall

September 1, 2016

University of Regina Vice President of Administration Dave Button discusses the school's recently announced deal with Conexus Credit Union, stating that there are currently some “misconceptions” around the agreement. “Probably one of the biggest misconceptions is that Conexus is getting this for free,” says Button. “They're actually paying well beyond what is fair and reasonable value. Only one part of what they're contributing to this actually gets reported. That's the cash amount of $8.25 million.” Button further notes that Conexus will be paying for major upgrades to Darke Hall, covering the area’s maintenance costs, and providing space for a business incubator. CBC
