Public casinos, private finances
From the Niagara Falls Review:
Ask the Ontario Lottery Gaming Corp. how much money Ontario’s four “resort” casinos contributed to the government’s coffers last year -after expenses -and the agency will happily answer: $217 million.
Inquire about the net revenue from any one of the casinos individually, though, and you’ll be told you can’t have that information.
“In order to protect the competitive position of the resort casinos, we cannot provide that individual casino information,” OLG spokesman Rui Brum said in an interview Wednesday.
