REGINA - The Opposition says the Saskatchewan government has made a deal to sell Casino Regina and Casino Moose Jaw to the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority.
The NDP says in a news release that the government gave the Opposition a briefing on the sale last Thursday, but wouldn't provide a copy of the memorandum of understanding.
The New Democrats say the government said the sale price would be between $100 million and $200 million.
NDP Leader Cam Broten (BRO'-tin) says the government should release full details of the agreement.
Broten also says legislation protecting Crown corporations sets out conditions before the casinos can be sold — including public consultations and a 90-day window after the next provincial election before a sale.
Aboriginal leaders in Saskatchewan have said for years that all the province's casinos should have a single operator and they want to be the ones at the table.
