Apparently, Toronto and environs are less than stoked up about getting a swank casino resort like this Oxford rendering depicts.
O Toronto, Canada! You are doing not appear to cotton way too much to the idea of a casino, would you?
Toronto and areas that are outlying been earmarked and several designers have expressed desire for the area for making a resort casino, but it seems that planners are operating out of areas which may be willing to accept a casino inside their neighborhood. The latest area to block a casino is Vaughan, which has voted against the thought of building a casino there.
Vaughan Just Says No, Narrowly
The city of Vaughan rejected the casino plan in a 5-4 vote. Even though the 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 refused casino deals. Toronto’s vote was probably the most infamous of all, as inspite of the support of Mayor Rob Ford, the city council rejected a downtown casino by a 40-4 vote. That ensured that the issue wouldn’t be coming up again within the future that is near. Markham’s vote was also one-sided, though by the less dramatic margin of 9-4.
