OLG Says it Wants to Build a Casino in the Greater Toronto Area

Following months of rumours to this effect, the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation announced today that it will be asking municipal politicians to allow the construction of a new casino somewhere in the Greater Toronto Area. This will no doubt be immensely gratifying to city councillors like Giorgio Mammoliti (Ward 7, York West) and Doug Ford (Ward 2, Etobicoke North), who in the past have taken every opportunity to tout gambling revenue as a possible solution to Toronto’s budget problems. Ontario Place has been put forward as a possible casino site, though John Tory, who’s heading a panel on redeveloping the area, has said it’s probably not happening. No further details are available at the moment, but we’re sure the new gambling-based economy will be awesome. Is it too late to ask for scratch-and-win property tax bills?
