One thing we should also factor in re: local horse industry - it doesn't just serve Flamboro Downs. So if that track were to close, it will probably have an impact, but whether the entire local horse industry collapses will depend more on what happens provincially. It may not be easy to determine which change will have the largest effect.

McCabe's statement about not wanting a stand-alone casino bodes well. But I have to wonder just how much influence the city will have in the end, given that they won't be the ones selecting the winning bidder. They can put all the conditions they want on the form of the development, but I would think they would be easily challenged by the developer, or exist as "futures" that may or may not be built once the casino itself is up and running.
