CBC Hamilton has posted an article by Adam Carter today titled "Horseracing industry collapsing, Hamilton area experts say":

The Ontario government decision to end the Slots for Racetracks program with no timely and viable alternative to replace it, and the push by OLG to move gaming facilities out of the racetracks and into the downtowns of Ontario cities and towns as soon as possible will weaken the resolve of many local farmers to continue operating their farms and instead considering selling their farms to developers. The convergence of this issue with other issues as AEGD expansion, the resurrection of the mid-peninsula highway plans, and the local decision of the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board to build a secondary school south of the Linc and close several high schools north of the Linc needs to be discussed and address at the local and provincial levels.
