To residents of Peterborough:

For three years No Casino Peterborough has asked City Council to say NO to a Casino within our city: for economic reasons, for branding reasons, and for social reasons. This reflects the will of residents who voted 65% for the NO side. It also reflects the view from most cities in Ontario, including Barrie, Kingston, Toronto, and Waterloo. Sadly, last May seven members of City Council voted with the mayor to allow a casino to come within the city, despite no public poll taking place.

This has now been appealed, and an Ontario Municipal Board prehearing is set for September 13, with the main hearing itself likely taking place later in the fall.

MYTH: The casino has to move from Fraserville.
 
FACT: The BC gaming company's statement from March 8 2016 clearly states that one option is an expanded casino at Kawartha Downs:
 
"OGELP expects to spend up to $49.0 million... to either replace the gaming facility at Kawartha Downs with a new facility at a new location or to redevelop the existing site." (bold added)

A large casino (600 slot machines) is proposed for Crawford Dr. off the 115

Kingston voted to keep their branding and improve their future; their casino is outside the city.

You can have a say through your councillors. Call or email. See City contacts link above.

Let's keep a buffer zone from a casino, and find better ways to develop Peterborough...

The 2013 Process: A Council Vote Worth Revisiting

A report to the Auditor General of Ontario by K. Denton and several members of NoCasino Peterborough.

Introduction

Before a new casino/gaming site can be developed in a municipality, Ontario Regulation 81/12 requires a municipality to seek public input, and give to Ontario Lottery and Gaming Commission (OLG) a description of the steps taken and a written report of input received.
In the case of Peterborough, it is our opinion that the spirit of this regulation has not been met.
