The City Institute at York University (CITY) will be hosting a panel discussion on Friday, Feb. 1, to critically address current attempts to build a mega-casino in Toronto.
“Casino City?”, the latest panel discussion in The City Institute’s City Seminar Series, will take place from 12:30 to 2pm, at 140 Health, Nursing & Environmental Studies Building, Keele campus.
The event will feature local politicians, scholars and anti-casino activists attempting to address three primary questions:
- Why are casinos bad economic policy?
- What is the current political economy of casino development in Ontario?
- What political strategies are needed to defeat casino development in Toronto?
Panellists will include:
Jim Cosgrave, professor, Trent University
Paula Fletcher, councillor, Ward 30
Peter Tabuns, MPP, Toronto Danforth
Kevin Stolarick, research director, MPI
Steven Tufts, professor, York University
Maureen Lynett, No Casino Toronto
The panel will be chaired by Roger Keil of the City Institute at York University.
