Jobs, Tourism and Innovation Minister Pat Bell remains hopeful a major announcement on the next steps for the Wood Innovation and Design Centre will be made this summer.
“We’re still not quite there yet but I’m feeling optimistic people are going to be very pleased when they see the rollout,” Bell said Thursday.
Bell, the MLA for Prince George-Mackenzie, declined to provide much more in specifics.
“If I told you that, I’d be revealing all the details,” he said when asked what stage the process the proposal is at.
But he later said it’s a structure for which there is no building code yet.
“We’ve had to deal with the complexities of that but I think we’ve got that pretty well figured out now,” Bell said.
