OLG Slots Close Today
Today's the day OLG is officially closing down its slot machine operations at racetracts in Windsor, Fort Erie and Sarnia today.
The corporation had chosen April 30th as the deadline for the closure that is eliminating the jobs of hundreds of workers.
OLG has said closing the slots was difficult, but a necessary step.
Part of the reason for the closure was having facilities in close proximity to each other and in these locations, the demand for customers, because they are close to the U.S. border, has dropped off.
