An Ontario PC Government will immediately begin work to bring back the Slots at Racetracks Program

Much-needed support for Ajax Downs 

Today, Rod Phillips announced that an Ontario PC government will immediately begin work to bring back the Slots-at-Racetracks Program (SARP).

“An Ontario PC government is going to work to bring this program back and help quarter horse racing thrive and grow in Durham Region. I have been working with Bob Broadstock and the quarter horse people for months, to find practical, achievable solutions to save the industry here in Durham.

“Quarter horse racing is responsible for 1700 jobs in Durham Region, and the revenue from the slots has helped keep property taxes lower. Without the slots, the Town of Ajax stands to lose $8 million in revenue yearly.

“In 2012, the minority Liberal Government, including Dalton McGuinty, Kathleen Wynne and Joe Dickson, passed their budget through the Legislature – which included the decision to kill SARP. Rather than voting against the budget, and stopping the gutting of the horse racing industry, the NDP, led by Andrea Horwath, abstained and propped up the government. In 2015, MPP Joe Dickson, signed a letter supporting the Durham Live proposal.

“The Ontario PCs will launch a working group to consult with the horse racing community and gaming proponents to bring slots back to racetracks as quickly possible.

“Only the Ontario PCs are committed to bringing this important program back. The NDP are waffling and refusing to commit.”
