A few relevant facts:

-The OLG has identified 29 "gaming zones" across the province where they are looking at putting in a casino. So we'll have competition.

-Since Hamilton gets nothing from the tables, we might as well consider them competition in terms of the City's direct share from the slots.

-While the City of Burlington has formally said 'no', Halton Region has not. It's uncertain what this could mean, but it's another potential complication. There could be more than one casino between here and Toronto.

My take: Even if a casino is a profitable enterprise for the OLG and the private operator, we might find that subtracting the social and policing costs from our share leaves us with less than we're already getting from our current setup in Flamboro.

The irony is, the track might actually be the key to making our casino experience different than what most others will offer.
