The Sample Letter for City Councillors
[ E-mail Heading: No Mega Casino! ]
Dear Councillor [ Their Name Appears Here ],
I oppose building a mega casino within the City of Toronto and I urge you to oppose any plan to build a casino in the city of Toronto.
The proposed mega casino would be detrimental to the economy and social fabric of the city. Mega casinos makes poor economic sense; there is no evidence that any such casino attracts tourist dollars, and a casino would have a devastating impact on local restaurants, bars, hotels and theatre. A mega casino would additionally have serious negative social impacts, including increased problem gambling, bankruptcies, crime, traffic gridlock and parking problems.
I urge you, as a community leader and member of Toronto City Council, to join me in opposing a mega casino within the City of Toronto.Signed,
[ Your Name & Address ]
