"In this country, we have too much of virtually everything. Too much consumption. Too many massive US operated casinos. Too much rhetoric and too much hot air. But we do not have too many racetracks!"

Trot Editor Darryl Kaplan tears apart the notion that Ontario has too many racetracks. In his August edition of "The View", Kaplan presents numbers that refute statements made by the Liberal government.

"Ontario’s Finance Minister Dwight Duncan continues to falsely state that Ontario has one quarter of the racetracks in North America. According to the International Federation of Horse Racing Authorities, there are 192 active racetracks in North America, meaning that Ontario actually has fewer than 9 per cent of the continent`s tracks."
