Sask Place Name Reinstatement sign now

We, the people of Saskatchewan and other concerned International persons are requesting the complete reversal of the naming of the "Credit Union Centre."

We the public feel that this is an outrage and an obviously low-class marketing scheme that strips the character of Saskatchewan Place. We who once felt pride in sports and entertainment events held there when this venue was named more appropriately are unable to see the worth of this action. Changing the name to Credit Union Centre only makes our City and Province look poor, desperate, and unattractive to international audiences and artists. It renders Saskatoon as an insignificant and "backwoods" sort of venue and will discourage international artists and events from coming to our province.

Calling this name change "a natural fit" is ludicrous and narrow minded. The partnership between the Credit Union and Saskatchewan Place should not have been taken to the extreme of changing the name of the Place. The new name is unimanginative and takes away from the character and pride of our province. No self-respecting entertainment artist will be proud to have played at "The Credit Union Centre," though artists in the past have made the news with appreciatory comments on "Sask Place."

High profile entertainers will not be attracted to our locale and the "Credit Union Centre" could be anywhere - no performer would be attracted to Saskatchewan on the basis of such a name and could easily be put off by such a statement of mediocrity. The Centre will quickly lose respect and very likely FUNDS.

Changing the names of the Credit Union organizations would be more intelligent than changing the name of Sask Place, as we have all come to know and appreciate it.

Please take action and overturn the contract immediately.

    City or Country of Residence Moose Jaw, SK Why don't you just call it, "We're sell outs, who take no pride in our province's name. We like money and banks"? Keep it as Saskatchewan Place. Trust me, no wonder BC people laugh at us.

    City or Country of Residence Canada When you change the name of a sports arena, or any arena for that matter, you shouldn't change it to a company's name unless they have a significant impact on the city. Credit Union Centre sounds like a big bank to me
