TORONTO – The City of Vaughan has voted against hosting a casino.
Vaughan councillors voted five-to-four in a committee meeting Tuesday night to kill the idea of a casino in their community.
This vote overturns an earlier decision to pursue one.
The vote needs to be ratified by council on Oct. 29.
Cities such as Toronto and Markham have already voted against the plan.
It would have cost close to $1.5 billion to build the casino complex in Vaughan.
