Re: Rideau Carleton Raceway should get new casino, Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson says in reversal
This is really good news! The final paragraph in the Mayor's motion is exactly what I said in my presentation to Council on the casino last Fall:
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Ontario Lottery Gaming Corporation be informed, prior to the start of the RFP process, that the only location acceptable to the City of Ottawa for an expanded gaming facility is the current location at the Rideau Carleton Raceway.
Glad to see the Mayor has finally come to his senses. A big thank you to Council and especially Councillors like Tim Tierney, David Chernushenko, Matthieu Fleury, Diane Deans and Scott Moffat who stuck to their guns to make sure Ottawa residents get the answer they desire.
