Western Fair District would like to commend the panel members for their time and effort in preparing the OMAFRA report released yesterday.
“We’ve come a long way since March 12 when it was announced that the slots at racetracks program would be cancelled,” noted Hugh Mitchell, Chief Executive Officer at WFD.
“On balance, I believe it's a great report that provides our industry with a platform and framework to negotiate with government a mutually agreeable funding plan. I'm encouraged by the Minister’s goal to, as quickly as possible, find a viable and stable model for the industry albeit one that inevitably will be smaller than what we have today.”
