The City of Toronto will be taking the question of whether there should be a casino built in city limits to a number of neighbourhood meetings in January.
The city-wide consultation will take the form of a series of community open houses, as well as an interactive website.
The consultation will allow input on several questions that council will be facing later in the winter when it decides whether to welcome a casino resort to the city: should there be a casino in Toronto at all?
If so, where would be the best location? What else should council consider in making its decision? The consultation meetings will take place in five locations starting the second week in January:
• Wednesday, Jan. 9: City Hall Rotunda, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen St. W, 6 to 9 p.m.
• Saturday, Jan. 12: North York Memorial Hall, 5110 Yonge St., 1 to 4 p.m.
• Monday, Jan. 14: Etobicoke Olympium Gymnasium, 590 Rathburn Rd., 6 to 9 p.m.
• Thursday, Jan. 17: Scarborough Civic Centre Rotunda, 150 Borough Dr., 6 to 9 p.m.
• Saturday, Jan. 19: Bluma Appel Salon at Reference Library, 789 Yonge St., 1 to 4 p.m.
The website is available now and will provide opportunities for comment in January, at http://www.toronto.ca/casinoconsultation
