If this is to happen I toss my hat in the ring in favour of Woodbine. It should be the boost Woodbine Live needs to get developed. Extend the Pearson monorail so that people can get there direct from the airport, and also travel easily between the casino and downtown with the monorail and Air-Rail link. Woodbine is big enough to have a full shopping/entertainment/gambling complex. A mini Vegas, and even bigger than the Woodbine Live plan (eat up some of the massive parking lots in the Woodbine Live plan with more casinos, hotels, etc. and put the parking underground or in garages. I don't gamble much, but the Vegas strip is fun and what I like is walking between casinos, seeing the hotels, eating in restaurants, doing some shopping, and stopping for an hour or so at blackjack tables in the different hotels. Rather than building one big casino, build a half dozen smaller ones, divided by restaurants, hotels, clubs, shows, shops. It would be an easily accessible destination for those on short stopovers at Pearson, right off the 401 and 427, more accessible for the fast growing suburbs and with the Air-Rail link and monorail could be easily accessible from downtown. It would cannibalize our downtown restaurants and clubs less.
I mean, the Woodbine Live project is not crazy enough to be like Vegas, it looks like where you end up if you make a wrong turn in Orlando, and you didn't want to be in Orlando in the first place. I don't see myself going there much. But I really do not want this at OP or the Ex. And I don't see it happening. There will be some serious opposition to the casino there.
