|City councilors are “getting closer in their effort to earmark a location where a casino can rise within the city in the future.” However, for the time being, there will be no casino in this city named after a royal figure who would not have been amused. A spokesperson for the B.C. Lottery Corporation added that the councilors “shouldn't get ahead of themselves, as the City of Victoria isn't on the radar screen as a possible casino site,” the report continued. |
“We're currently not considering a casino in the Victoria area,” said Roberta Kjelson, Manager of Public Affairs for BCLC.
However, regarding whether city resources [money] should be put into planning for the city's casino now, as some want, Mayor Alan Lowe said “the city just wants to `be prepared.’”
