I find this project disgusting, i want a casino. Maybe somewhere around the Wood-Bine track, but this project rlly ruins the view of the skyline when looking down from the cn tower. Instead of skyline well see 2 tall condos.
It's the third largest transit system in north america behind Mexico City and NYC! Pretty dam huge for the city's size.
â€œWhat we know is real is that casinos cost jobs...
What does Vaughan mean when he says casinos cost jobs? That might be the most idiotic thing he has said ever, unless I'm misunderstanding...
Casinos will bring jobs and he is talking as if it is a great peril to the economy...
Aria is MGM. I love that hotel, it doesn't feel like a casino hotel resort, more like an upscale condo/shopping complex.
I guess Caesars does have a level of tackiness in some of the interiors like the lobby and casino, but the hotel rooms and restaurants are 5 star quality and not at all tacky. I'm more worried about what the outside looks like, so far going by those renderings it looks pretty good, I like the entrance i think it fits in well with the downtown.
A casino will poach the nearby businesses and that will lead to job losses.
Vaughan is correct; these proposals have played it fast and loose with the numbers and the promises. He's hardly "idiotic" for questioning the smoke and mirrors that these casino dudes employ to make their killing.
. That will undermine or suck business away from nearby hotels, shops, restaurants and theatres. The casino is built not there for the benefit of the city, but it is there to make a profit for the owners. .
Mayor Rob Ford lauds Toronto casino as Caesars illustrations, pro-casino study released
I think what's more telling is that Ford "likes" this, yet he's been an absolute non-presence re anything to do w/Gehry/Mirvish: no sound bites, nothing, might as well not exist...
