Opinion Oct 17, 2012 Flamborough Review

Kevin Werner keeps reporting the erroneous statement that the province, by eliminating the Slots at Racetracks Program, will save $345 million.

Without the Slots at Racetracks Program, there would be no $345 million generated – period.

By eliminating this revenue, the province is  destroying $345 million of future economic activity. That does not make much sense to me if the government is really interested in reducing its debt.
