The planning for the expansion of the Temple Gardens Mineral Spa is underway under the new ownership of HPVC.


We told you on Friday that the sale of shares in the Temple Gardens Mineral Spa has been approved by shareholders.

Now we're hearing from the company that's buying the nearly 4.2 million shares, HPVC out of Winnipeg. President Arni Thorsteinson tells us now that the transaction is winding down preparations for expansion are underway. "We'd like to add some additional guest rooms and enhance some of the food and beverage facilities as well. You could probably see something in 2008."

Thorsteinson is in Moose Jaw Tuesday for meetings with spa officials to talk about the expansion.
