City politicians do not want to see a new theatre built at Fallsview Casino, where a staff report showed the building’s height would obscure views of the Horseshoe Falls from various hotels overlooking the cataract.

The proponent, a Quebec-based consortium, has proposed to build the theatre at Fallsview Casino Resort, which is on land owned by the provincial government.
The proponent is looking to build the theatre over top of the bus area at the rear of Fallsview
