The Nova Scotia Gaming Corporation, and Sheraton Casinos Nova
Scotia are discussing the required submissions for the
construction of a new, permanent casino in Halifax. Those
discussions are proceeding under the terms of the Halifax Casino
Construction Contract.

The construction schedule, as amended last year, remains in
effect. The schedule calls for completion of a permanent casino
by September, 1998.

Discussions centre around whether a construction extension is
called for and the terms of that extension. There is a mechanism
in the contract to resolve differences should the two partners
fail to reach an agreement.
