Toronto City Council votes to kill casino project

22 May 2013

The Toronto City Council went ahead with a vote Tuesday to kill a casino project proposed for the downtown area that attracted interest from Nevada largest gaming companies.

City Council members voted against the project, despite a move last week by the mayor to take the issue off the table. The special meeting was called by a majority of the council against the objections of the mayor.

The move by Canada’s largest city ends the casino debate. MGM Resorts International, Caesars Entertainment Corp., Las Vegas Sands Corp., and Wynn Resorts Ltd., all pitched ideas for a hotel-casino and entertainment complex in Toronto.
