As she has made aware, Councillor McMahon opposes the construction of a casino in our city. She believes that casinos damage the social environment in cities and do not offer the economic benefits they advertise. They negatively affect local businesses and prey on the impulses of the addicted and vulnerable. She believes there are alternative, more innovative and less damaging ways to solve Toronto’s financial troubles. Councillor McMahon has heard from many Ward 32 residents and fellow Torontonians of their opposition to the casino at the five consultations held across the city.
Therefore, Councillor McMahon will not be supporting any proposal to place a casino in our city.
