A casino in the City of Vaughan would have serious negative social impacts, including increased problem gambling, bankruptcies, crime, traffic gridlock and parking problems.


Letter to
Mayor and Members of Council The City of Vaughan
I oppose building a casino within the City of Vaughan and I urge you to oppose any plan to build a casino in the city of Vaughan.

The proposed casino would be detrimental to the economy and social fabric of our city. Casinos makes poor economic sense; there is no evidence that any such casino attracts tourist dollars, and a casino would have a devastating impact on local businesses. A casino would additionally have serious negative social impacts, including increased problem gambling, bankruptcies, crime, traffic gridlock and parking problems.

I urge you, as a community leader and member of Vaughan City Council, to join me in opposing a casino within the City of Vaughan.
