    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    One exhibitor booth in particular at last week’s Association of Municipalities of Ontario conference caught the attention of Mayor Jim Diodati.

    “One of the booths this year that I’ve never seen before was an Airbnb booth. We (Diodati and the city’s chief administrative officer Ken Todd) spent a lot of time there. We grabbed a bunch of resources, and spoke with their national reps on their approach. That was eye-opening. It was so interesting. They want to participate, following all rules. They don’t want to have groups going off and causing trouble and ruckus in communities.”

    It was timely, said Diodati, as the city is trying to come up with a better way to control vacation rental properties, which in some cases have caused issues in certain neighbourhoods.

    From Niagara This Week:

    The City will continue to push the provincial government for Niagara Falls to be a part of the government’s gaming modernization strategy, Mayor Jim Diodati says.

    “We want to keep the heat on,” Diodati said.

    That was one of the things discussed with provincial officials at the recent Association of Municipalities of Ontario conference in Ottawa, Diodati said.

    “We had talks with the Minister of Finance (Charles Sousa) and Minister of Infrastructure (Glen Murray). The big thing was trying to get a decision of the modernization of gaming.”
