Originally, the 35-unit facility was to have its groundbreaking by the end of August. However, as is not unusual, there have been a few delays. According to George Heide of the Turtle Mountain Heritage Group that is spearheading the effort, one of these is the dropping of the writ.

The government in Manitoba set a new provincial election for September 10. Heide said they were in contact with the government over a few unmentioned items, and as he explained, nothing much happens while an election is in the offing. It has slowed them down a little.
