Plans to build a Conexus bank in Wascana Park are not sitting well with some Regina residents.
A 90 year lease on land next to College Campus’ Darke Hall made by the University of Regina would provide much-needed funding to the park.
Lorriane Weidner with the group No Business in the Park says there are more honest ways to provide funding than taking away green space.
“There are lots of places to go for funding,” says Weidner. “We think if Conexus would give a genuine donation, with no strings attached, other corporations would follow suit.”
The group introduced an official petition on Wednesday they hope residents will sign before they take it to the City of Regina, the U of R and Conexus.
