The Word From the Fans

I went to Woodbine tonight for the races, which were cancelled due to unsafe track conditions. The strike talk that the horseman association is trying to drum up support for was not exactly a hit with the fans. From my very limited sample tonight:

"Are they nuts?"

"Do they know there is a recession out there?"

"We should call our MPP's and demand that slot money does not go to you people any longer because you are all crazy"

So far, New Coke was considered a big hit compared to this.

Fundamental question:
Why is so much slot money going towards purses, and enriching horsemen.Horses formerly running for $2,000 purse are now running for a $20,000 purse. WHY?

There are other more needy social causes for that money.

Hello!! Any MPP's listening??
Is the premier listening??
If not, its time to wake up!!
