Statement on the proposal for a Toronto casino

Dear residents,


Many of you have contacted me about the possibility of a Toronto casino. In recent weeks, I have taken the time to review and study research documents from both Canada and abroad on the economic and social impacts of casinos and problem-gambling. While I recognize the need to find sources of revenue to pay for our city's priorities, I do not believe that the long-term impact on Toronto, its neighbourhoods, its economy and its people are worth the gamble. I would far rather Council give serious consideration to road tolls or other infrastructure-related revenue sources before taking such a desperate act. Therefore I will not be supporting any proposal to place a casino in our city, nor any other proposals that contribute to the adverse social and economic impacts that gambling has.
