I really don't want this casino to go through

do we really need to brand ourselves even further as "white vegas"?

The worst part of the whole casino fiasco is that Ford says that it will fund transit, along with private investment. I'm so sick of him getting away with suggesting that shit will happen basically for free, or by magic, all while simply being a puppet for corporate interests and claiming to only be on the side of the "taxpayers". Make it stop.

as long as they don't put this casino in the downtown core i won't get all worked up.

Put it on the outskirts or whatever. fine. Somewhere where you can build a huge parking lot.

don't know why you wouldn't want it in the city. In Australia all of the major cities have a casino in the downtown core and it works fine.
and our public transport and parking situations aren't that much better than Toronto

isn't the casino proposal part of a mixed use/condo development?

SEOUL — North Korea warned on Tuesday that foreigners in South Korea should look for shelter or consider evacuating because the Korean Peninsula was on the brink of nuclear war. But the South Korean president, Park Geun-hye, said she remained determined not to succumb to the North's efforts to escalate tensions to extract concessions from the South.

because it would be one of toronto's main attractions, and I don't want this city's main attraction to be a goddamn casino. toronto is americanized enough as it is. too much so.

that vimy ridge article made me tear up. I love this nation so much so and I 100 percent wish it to keep its identity seperate from the Americans. our people are very very different in mind set and for that I'm one proud Canadian

I heard a radio documentary a little while ago about some of the Argentine children of disappeared mothers who later found out they were raised by those basically responsible. What a haunting identity crisis to go through.

So basically you want to have a 20 story tim hortons as the main attraction, with a billboard that says "Sorry for taking up so much space"?

I don't even understand.

and it's statements like these that make me sad about humanity.

are you Canadian? if so, shame on you.

if not, shame on us for providing such a stupid stereotype fuel. Canadians have incredible values that shouldn't be changed for a few extra bucks of income from a revenue. torontonians shouldn't want to become New york lite, because we have something else to offer. Canadian values are great.

Ya you're right, I'm sorry for not basing all of my values purely on the country I was born in. Opps, I said sorry, guess I have to be Canadian.

Your opinion of not wanting a Casino in downtown doesn't make you any more Canadian than anyone that does want it there.
