    GTA Live Poker // Wpodbine

    As some of you may know, Great Canadian Gaming has chosen to remove poker permanently from the Great Blue Heron Casino in Port Perry, effective Monday June 25th. This is in addition to them having removed poker from Woodbine the day they took over 6 months back.

    A friend of mine heard back from the General Manager at Woodbine, where he stated poker is not in the plans for any of GCG's Toronto area properties. I believe GCG hates poker, and they will not be spreading it at any of their casinos. Land in Port Perry costs nothing. For them to remove it from that casino is a very, very, very bad sign.

    Accordingly, I've come to the conclusion that it's now time to launch a PR campaign against GCG, with the intended effect of making them adhere to their commitments to the OLG when they were granted the license for the GTA casinos, which includes, among other things, diversifying the offerings, and lowering their customer age demographic (ie more poker, less slots).

    So I put a petition up here --
    https://www.change.org/p/doug-ford-l...ker-in-the-gta

    Any comments you make will be emailed to the following people:
    Doug Ford, Premier of Ontario
    Michael Ford, Councillor Ward 2, which contains Woodbine Casino
    John Tory, Mayor of Toronto
    and last but definitely not least...
    Stephen Rigby, President OLG

    Please sign it, send it to all your friends, post it on social media, etc. I want to force GCG to honour their commitments, and bring a big live poker room to Toronto!

    After the petition has sufficient numbers if I don't see a satisfactory response I'll be taking the campaign to the media.

    Petition is well worded and thought out, signed and commented on... Not that I think our governments ever pay any attention to us anyways..
    If someone doesn't hate you, you're a wimp... comp: circa 2012.. and now 2013 as well, quite likely continuing into 2014, Now confirmed as CONTINUING well into 2014. Ah, f'it, 2015's just more of the same..

    I was at Woodbine today to finally cash out the money that was in my poker account there. The woman at the counter told me that Woodbine would be having poker with dealers starting around mid-August. She also thought that there would still be a few virtual poker tables in play but was not sure. The location of the new poker room would be on the second floor. She could not tell me what games would be offered or if there are going to be any tournaments...
