CasiNO! Will Be Saying “Yes” to Flamborough Location at Supercrawl

Hamilton, ON (September 11, 2013) – No Downtown Hamilton Casino will be at Supercrawl this coming Saturday to voice their support for Hamilton City Council’s unanimous resolution to keep all Ontario Lottery and Gaming (OLG) casino operations located at the Flamboro Downs site. Supercrawl visitors are invited to visit the Information Booth, to be located outside HIStory + HERitage at James and Cannon on Saturday, September 14, 2013, to review literature and sign a petition lending their support for Flamboro Downs as the only location for a casino in Hamilton.

“It’s not widely known that OLG has included clauses in the lease of Flamboro Downs that will allow the winner of next bid for the Hamilton gaming zone the right to close the racetrack and move OLG gambling operations anywhere they please within the gaming zone,” says event organizer Mark Richardson. “Ultimately, only Hamilton’s City Council has the power to say ‘No, we will not approve of any relocation’ and we want to remind them the Hamilton’s citizens support that stance.”

Local and international business interests, along with the OLG, are working to convince City Council to sanction OLG gambling operations in the downtown core. No Downtown Hamilton Casino aims to remind and reassure City Council that the citizens of Hamilton support the wise, educated, and principled stand Council has already made.
