The McGuinty government has made a lot of money off the facilities it’s closing. And now, it’s turning that business over to private companies to open new locations.

The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation announced earlier this month that it will shut slot machines at three border racetracks.

The government has no plan to replace the jobs. Please come to the rally.

Watch for details on a rally at Queen’s Park, Monday, March 26.
