    OLG Toronto/GTA casino proposal (where to put it?)

    Prohibition has never worked and thats what bonehead councillors like Vaughn and others are promoting. It didnt work with alcohol, cigarettes, and its not working in other areas that I'm not going to get into. As far as solving a major problem, how about the hundreds of underground games that...

    Even if it is...the hypocrisy still exists, there is no denying that!

    OLG Toronto/GTA casino proposal (where to put it?)

    So do you think that the hundreds of LCBO's on the corners of every major intersection in the GTA cause addiction to alcohol? And the thousands of convenience stores selling cigarettes cause addiction to smoking? Should we ban the opening of all Mac's Milks, 7/11's, and LCBO's? Come on now, lets...

    OLG Toronto/GTA casino proposal (where to put it?)

    I would also go one step further...the Casino should be contingent on Oxford providing the city with exactly what they have proposed including the large park over the railyard lands. If this is not agreed to, then they can kiss their casino goodbye. The only thing that I don't get is the elitist...

    OLG Toronto/GTA casino proposal (where to put it?)

    Yeah but who says its going to be dinky? I think we should wait until more details of the proposal(s) come to light before jumping to any conclusions...correct? I think this location would be perfect because it will blend in with all of the other office, convention, and retail that is being...

    OLG Toronto/GTA casino proposal (where to put it?)

    Haha...people in Toronto don't have money??? Tell that to the donk stock brokers, doctors, and lawyers at my Thursday night game that think J7 offsuit is a good poker hand! There is a lot of money in the core, especially this part of downtown.

    Baby, we got a bubble!?

    I think being underwater wouldn't really matter to the average honeowner. If you are comfortable where you are, have a long- term fixed interest rate that you are paying off regularly, then it wouldn't really matter how much your house is worth. Of course if interest rates rise drastically, your...

    OLG Toronto/GTA casino proposal (where to put it?)

    I agree with AKS...I don't think that A) there is or ever will be any government money to re-build/re-vitalze areas such as OP and the EX and B) the only time an area in this city gets re-developed into something positive for all Torontonians is when lands are sold to private investors. There is...

    Mississauga Toronto | Absolute World | 169.77m | 56s | Cityzen | MAD architects

    I wonder where these beautiful towers would rank if there was a world competition for architecture? Probably top 5 I fathom. They certainly are extremely photogenic... Just as the beautiful, sexy, sultry Marylin Monroe was too.

    OLG Toronto/GTA casino proposal (where to put it?)

    If a casino is built in Toronto, it would be packed every day! Port Perry, Brantford, probably Rama too would cease to exist.

    OLG Toronto/GTA casino proposal (where to put it?)

    ^^^ The point is, being able to access safe and sound poker games in a nice and safe environment would definitely be appreciated by the thousands of players that grind their living throughout the GTA as well as the casual player who may play poker once or twice a month. Daniel Negreaunu a local...

    OLG Toronto/GTA casino proposal (where to put it?)

    Ahhh, I think the thousands of players that have to play illegal poker games throughout the city of Toronto every day would very much appreciate it. Also having to go to Port Perry or Brantford whenever you want to play in a bigger buy-in tournament is a pain. I would definitely play the no...

    OLG Toronto/GTA casino proposal (where to put it?)

    Thanks Caehlan for posting these pics. I think this is a great example of what an Entertainment Complex along the Waterfront of a major urban city set out to achieve. These little sub projects, cafes, parks, outdoor stage, art, fountains, shopping, etc. etc. is what makes this project so...

    OLG Toronto/GTA casino proposal (where to put it?)

    From this article I think we can safely rule out Ontario Place as the future Mega Casino site. Looks like OP's future may end up as Waterfront Condos instead. My gut feeling is that any future Mega Resort Casino will be located either at the Ex or the Portlands. I think the latter which would...

    Like I said before MGM and Caesers are only interested in Toronto....they will not build this anywhere else.

    OLG Toronto/GTA casino proposal (where to put it?)

    Its funny Woodbine racetrack has been around since 1956. As far as I can remember they only introduced slots there a few years ago and now all of a sudden the slot machines are the be all and end all for the place? It doesn't make sense, Woodbine Racetrack is exactly what it name implies, a...

    OLG Toronto/GTA casino proposal (where to put it?)

    The best way to do this would be a contest. Let MGM, Caesers, Onex, all submit a design once a location has been selected. The design criteria would be something like architecture, outdoor spaces, attractions, retail, innovation, etc. etc. Then WE can decide on which proposal best suits...
