Moose Jaw Civic Centre’s Days Are Numbered

This is slightly old news, but on April 16th Moose Jaw city council approved the rezoning and sale of the Moose Jaw Civic Centre (aka The Crushed Can). Which means demolition can’t be far behind.

This shouldn’t come as much of a surprise as the centre closed last year, and the seating and ice plant has since been removed. But still. It’s a great building, and a wonderful example of the mid-century modernist work of prolific Saskatchewan architect Joseph Pettick. It will be missed.
