    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Niagara Falls wants its voice heard as Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corp. seeks a service provider to run the day-to-day operations of the city’s two casinos.

    “We’re very supportive of separately managed properties, so that we can utilize the benefits of competition,” said Coun. Victor Pietrangelo.

    “We’d like to see both properties, not just one, re-branded and re-developed.”

    He said while the province is trying to find out what works best for its gaming modernization plan, the city needs to “let them know what works best for us.

    “First and foremost is the long-term security of the employees at both of our casinos. Secondly, we have the businesses that rely on the casinos, and also the people that are employed by those businesses,” said Pietrangelo.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    More than 70 workers who provide valet and parking services at the Hilton Hotel in Niagara Falls will be out of work on April 30.

    The employees, some of whom have worked at the hotel for more than 10 years, were notified by letter this week that their jobs will be contracted out to another company, Niagara Falls Valet Services.

    Martin Letourneau, 48, a union steward who has worked at the hotel four years, said he expected there might be job losses when the new tower opened with a new garage, but he never imagined that all of their jobs would be gone.
