Downtown and Suburbs Face-off Again - This Time Over Casinos

It may be Valentines Day, but there seems to be no love lost this afternoon between downtown city councillors...and their colleagues in Scarborough. Last week, the rivals were pursuing THEIR visions for transit in the city. And downtown concillors won the day. Today, the lovers' quarrel is over casinos. First, Trinity Spadina City Councillor Adam Vaughan asked the Toronto and East York Community Council to look into ways of BANNING casinos downtown. Within hours, the Scarborough Community Council was voting to APPROVE the developments of casinos in the city. Joining Laura Di Battista to talk about today's long-distance debate was Scarborough Councillor Paul Ainslie. But first, she spoke with Adam Vaughan. Listen audio (runs 7:10)
