Collingwood Named As A Possible Casino Site

This recent article in the Globe and Mail  caught me completely by surprise.  It said,

“The McGuinty government is keen to open casinos and slot machines in under-serviced markets. With the province facing a nearly $15-billion deficit, the government is under pressure to find new revenue sources.

Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. is calling for a total of five new gambling facilities in Ontario. In addition to the GTA, the other regions are Kenora, Belleville, Collingwood and North Bay.”

What?????  Has this been under discussion at the local level?

Here’s the scary part.  Whatever I think always seems to be the opposite of what actually happens and since I think this is a rotten idea, it scares me that maybe in could happen.  Then again, I can’t imagine it could really be a possibility.  Just the thought of it makes me shudder.
