Apparently, Toronto and environs are less than excited about getting a swank casino resort like this Oxford rendering depicts.
O Toronto, Canada! You do not appear to cotton too much to the notion of a casino, would you?
Toronto and outlying areas have been earmarked and several developers have actually expressed curiosity about the area for developing a resort casino, but it would appear that planners are running out of areas that may be willing to accept a casino within their neighborhood. The latest area to block a casino is Vaughan, which has voted against the idea of developing a casino there.
Vaughan Just Says No, Narrowly
The town of Vaughan rejected the casino plan in a vote that is 5-4. Even though vote had been very close, it echoed the results in other towns and cities in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), as two others have actually already rejected such an idea therefore the two locations that are remaining not likely or at least uncertain allowing a casino within their city limits.
Vaughan joins Toronto and Markham City as having formally rejected casino discounts. Toronto’s vote was the absolute most infamous of all, as inspite of the support of Mayor Rob Ford, the town council rejected a downtown casino by a 40-4 vote. That ensured that the issue would not be coming up again into the future that is near. Markham’s vote was also one-sided, though by the less margin that is dramatic
