If Casino were Part of Larger Complex Including Restaurants, Shops, Entertainment and Hotel, Four in Ten (37%) More Supportive
Toronto, ON – Almost all Torontonians (89%) have heard about the possibility of a casino in Toronto and at first blush 54% of Torontonians support the idea while nearly half (47%) oppose it according to a new Ipsos Reid poll conducted on behalf of the Canadian Gaming Association.
However, if the casino were part of a larger complex which included restaurants, shops, entertainment venues and a hotel, four in ten (37%) Torontonians say they would be more supportive of the casino project, including 17% of those who were opposed at the outset, while one in ten (6%) are less supportive knowing this, and six in ten (57%) say their opinion of the project hasn’t changed either way knowing this.
