NYC fares just went up to $2.50. I'm not really complaining because I heard we got it better than most the rest of the country. I take the train a lot, and it can get you literally almost anywhere in the city.

Can't really compare since I haven't been to NYC in a long time, but the whether here is really random. It will either be very cold or very warm.

And yeah, you will be able to survive... try out curling.

Living in Sauga myself, it's pretty terrible. They should get a connection route to Square One like Scarbrough has one for Scarbrough Town Centre.

And now they want a bigass casino in downtown Toronto. Why do they need one when there are a bunch of large and small gambling places around the city already?

Their buses ?

If they plan correctly, parking their cars shouldn't be that much of a problem. I would see most tourists not having their on vehicles and probably taking local transportation or walking from their hotels.

Tour buses. It is somewhat cheaper taking those that are mainly for casino customers to travel across the cities.

And "Parking on Don Valley Parkway" is a joke, BTW.

Oh okay, I thought you meant tourists are driving their own buses or something.

Yeah, I got the joke.

The City has identified three study areas in C1 in which a new casino could be located: Exhibition Place, Downtown, or the Port Lands.

The City has identified Woodbine Racetrack as the only study area in C2


C1 – Exhibition Place

Situated between the Gardiner Expressway, Lake Shore Boulevard, Dufferin Street and Strachan Avenue, just north of Lake Ontario.

Exhibition Place hosts major public celebrations, festivals and events, including the CNE and Honda Indy.

As Toronto’s largest entertainment venue, with over 190 acres of land that attracts over 5.3 million visitors a year, it is an important venue for business, commerce, trade and consumer shows and conferences and conventions. A number of the existing structures have heritage value.



C1 – Downtown

Bounded by Spadina Avenue, King Street, Jarvis Street and Queens Quay Boulevard.

This area has office towers, arts and culture venues, hotels, entertainment activities, stores, restaurants, convention facilities, tourist attractions and an emerging residential neighbourhood.



The Port Lands

Encompass approximately 880 acres of land located south of the Don Valley and Gardiner/Lake Shore, east of the downtown core.

The Port Lands consist primarily of industrial and harbour related uses. In September 2012, the City endorsed the Port Lands Acceleration Initiative which identifies the lands as being an important revitilization opportunity for the City.



C2 – Woodbine
660 acre site that has existing race track operations, including a grandstand and casino with slot machines and electronic table games.

This large site has room for development, connections to highways 427 and 27, and approximately 14,000 parking spaces. The site has been used as a race track since the mid-1950s and hosts major events like the Queen's Plate.
