Attention: Premier Doug Ford

The purpose of this letter to you and our PC government is to bring attention to the important impact that The Raceway at Western Fair District has on rural Ontario and the importance of Standardbred horse racing at the Western Fair District.

I am a farm owner/operator and currently have more than 30 horses in my stable. We have been able to somewhat stabilize our operation since the ending of the SARP in 2013 and would like to emphasize how critical The Raceway at Western Fair District is to our operation and those of the many horse people in Southwestern Ontario.

Without it, I can most certainly project a horrendous loss of jobs in rural Ontario and the certain collapse of our industry.

I implore you to continue the support your government has already shown the horse racing industry by supporting the Western Fair District going forward with a long-term partnership that will allow us to maintain grow and flourish in the years to come.

Yours truly,

Mark Horner

Could you fill in the $$ blanks. When you google 'Western Fair annual report' the last one posted is 2014. Never any mention of how much government financial support ($$) required to continue racing.
