City of Kitchener casino consultation survey results and report available

KITCHENER – After an extensive community consultation that included a survey, two public input sessions and feedback provided to city hall, the results are in: overwhelmingly, the public is opposed to a casino in the City of Kitchener or in the surrounding area.

The city’s survey, which was completed by 2326 respondents, indicated that 75% oppose a casino. Social problems are the number one reason cited for opposing a gaming facility.

“We heard from the community and the message is clear: this community does not want a casino,” said Jeff Willmer, CAO, City of Kitchener. “This survey had, by far, the strongest participation rate that the city has seen – which speaks to the importance of this issue in the community.”

The complete report and survey analysis are available on the city’s website at www.kitchener.ca/casino.

Kitchener council is scheduled to deal with the issue on May 13.
