OLG Wants Answer On Toronto Casino
The OLG is continuing its push for a casino in Toronto and says it wants an answer by next year.
That's when OLG chair Paul Godfrey says the process needs to be finalized.
While a panel headed by Newstalk 1010's John Tory to look into revitalizing Ontario Place recommended not building a casino on the property, Godfrey says that's not the end of it. He points to any other location on the waterfront or in the downtown core.
Godfrey says around 12,000 jobs that could be created in the city aside from 6,000 construction jobs.
As for residents who don't want a casino in their neighbourhood, he says he's not looking to put one in a residential section of town.
Godfrey underlines the casino/convention centre/entertainment complexe would be in the heart of everything and he notes the city would become more desirable to businesses if it had bigger event space.
