Wynne has ‘no answer’ for racetrack in 2014

Premier Kathleen Wynne had no answer on the fate of the Fort Erie Race Track for a handful of trackers at Fort Erie Town Hall this morning.

Wynne met with them for a few minutes following an hour-long closed door meeting with municipal and business leaders.

“I don’t have an answer for you on that (racing for 2014),” she said.

“I want Fort Erie to have a future and you can’t shut down for a long time and expect the future to be there,” she said. “You can read between the lines on that.”

Asked if horsemen can get ready to come to Fort Erie for 2014 racing, Wynne said she was “committed to a future for Fort Erie, and I’m going to continue to work on that.”

    Typical politicking.

    If the Liberals were serious about Fort Erie, they would have given an answer already in regards to the track and the Chinese New Year. It’s not a complicated proposal.

    As for Tim, where are you Tim?? Yes, Fort Erie is nothing but a pimple on the ass of politics, and only accounts for what, half a percentage point in the polls bit Tim, people are getting upset with the fact that you seem to have forgotten the directions to your hometown. You can make it to Niagara Falls but can’t spare the 20 minute drive to Fort Erie? No one is expecting a magic wand and all the problems fixed with a wave, but at least make an appearance. Fort Erie may not have the political numbers to make any change on who becomes premiere, but it does have the pull to elect a new MPP.

    Can’t do much for the PC party Tim if you lose your seat.

    In fairness, Hudak and Maves had a media event on the boulevard near the bridge Thursday morning. I wasn’t able to go. He has been in Town fairly often. This isn’t his seat. His is Niagara West-Glenbrook which straddles the border of Niagara and Hamilton and covers Grimsby and those places.
