Fort Erie Mayor Doug Martin has said that he and members of the Fort Erie Live Racing Consortium will sit down with Ontario Lottery and Gaming officials on Tuesday, May 1 to discuss a proposal which would see the FELRC take over operating duties of the slots gaming area at Fort Erie Race Track, which will be closing April 30.

According to a report by Bullet News Niagara, Liberal MPP Kim Craitor has backed the proposal from the FELRC, which assumed racing operations at the historic track in recent years.

“We’re going to make our presentation to them on Tuesday," the article has quoted Mayor Martin as saying. "We’re also looking for some additional information from them as well. Then we’ll go from there.”

The report has cited MPP Craitor as saying that he thinks the proposed operational gaming model could possibly be put into place at other Ontario locations.

“I feel comfortable (backing the proposal) because I believe the consortium has demonstrated they were able to run the race track,” MPP Craitor was also quoted as saying.

It would appear the upshot of the cancellation of the slots at racetrack is the loss to the horse industry of their 10 percent,everyone else is going to get their cut.Already breeders are cancelling breedings.The OLG and Duncan have a lot to answer for,the slots at racetrack was an excellent program and should never have been cancelled
