Alberta to give Fort MacLeod $10 million after cancelling police college project

January 11, 2013

The town of Fort MacLeod, Alberta will receive $10.26 million from the provincial government to reimburse it for the scrapped police college project. Last August, the province announced it was cancelling its plans for the $122-million college that was intended to train police and peace officers from across Alberta and was to feature classrooms, a track, shooting range, and residence. The cancellation infuriated Fort MacLeod, which claimed to have spent $4 million alone on installing services to the site. Calgary Herald
