Approved was $100,000 worth of funding to support the Canadian Pacific Women’s Open in 2018.
The funding is conditional on whether or not the Wascana Country Club’s bid is approved for the tournament.
Mayor Michael Fougere says hosting the tournament would put Regina on the map.
“This is a great opportunity to showcase the Wascana golf course, but also showcase our city, to the country and around the world.”
If Wascana Country Club is selected the City of Regina will provide a $50,000 cash grant and the provision of City services up to $50,000.
City Council also made huge strides to acknowledge the Truth and Reconciliation Commission at Tuesday night’s meeting.
A motion to adopt recommendations of the TRC will now be due from City Administration by the end of 2016.
Ivy Kennedy is a residential school survivor and says this is step in the right direction.
“We have to educate people and let them know the plight we had as residential school survivors.”
One of the first things the City will look at is commemorating a graveyard on the city’s west end, which holds the remains of aboriginal children who attended the Regina Indian Industrial School, used in the sixties scoop.
