Therefore, again we have concerns about anything that diminishes the life of anyone else in our community, even if we are then going to pour money into trying to deal with their addiction later. The United Church has raised issues around the concern for gambling for a number of years. We’re not here, I would say, unless my colleague corrects me, out of some sense of piety and that gambling is wrong in a pious sense; we’re here because we want to talk about how money is distributed and how the poor are taken care of in this province. Susan and I are going to rotate our presentation, which was put together very quickly this afternoon, and I’d ask her to pick up from here. The committee has already heard of the addictive nature of the VLT. All gambling has the potential to become dangerous to some in this manner. It is important to remember that a huge number of these machines are currently in use in Ontario in an unregulated manner. Better to have all Ontarians benefit from these machines through taxation and charitable funding. While all the behind-the-scenes planning has been happening, who’s been studying the socioeconomic impact of VLTs, the crack cocaine of gambling? Lottery retailers such as myself who have been in the business for 21 years don’t only oppose VLTs for the competition; we oppose them in principle and we don’t want them made available at any lottery or gambling establishment, let alone just in restaurants and bars. When I voted PC in the recent election it was because Premier Harris was opposed to VLTs. Additionally, three weeks prior to the last budget, Norm Sterling wrote to Charities First indicating that no VLTs would be introduced to the province without extensive research and consultation with the charities. In my opinion, they have both lied, and therefore the $180 million promised to charities through VLT revenues can’t be trusted. In Alberta, charities were given a similar promise, and they’re still waiting to see any money from VLT revenues after nearly two years. The VLTs will no doubt, as they have in other provinces, hurt the break-open ticket business in Ontario; in some cases in the other provinces up to 60%.

Under Bill 75 there will be the permanent charity gaming halls as a source of funding for charities. I imagine the service clubs would be involved in them, as they have been over the years in various bingo halls and so on around the province, providing the manpower so that they get revenue from it. The second source will be the funds coming from video lotteries, which you’ve mentioned, at 10% excluding video lotteries at racetracks. The roving charities, the Monte Carlo nights, will continue to exist on a limited scale. They’ll be only one day rather than three days and they’ll be scaled back, but that opportunity to raise money for charity will still be there. We support video lotteries in permanent charitable gaming halls. Our industry has been actively involved in the community by providing fund-raising events for local charities. There is an established relationship between racetracks and charitable organizations, and this relationship could be further developed for the benefit of both of these established gaming operators if permanent charitable gaming halls were located at racetracks. We do not believe the Ontario government can or should turn a blind eye to the seriousness of the grey market. In addition to the reported 15,000 to 25,000 illegal video lottery terminals in this province, there are other forms of illegal gaming. For example, Internet now offers numerous and varied online wagering activities for anyone willing to play. These operators are often based offshore and the money flows out of the country instead of being retained in Ontario. Illegal operators are not subject to the regulatory controls to which the Ontario horse racing industry and other established legal gaming operations are subjected. Horse racing generates 33 person-years of employment for every $1 million of incremental industry expenditures. The Ontario horse racing industry, if provided with the opportunity, will integrate video lottery gaming into our racetracks to create a quality gaming entertainment destination centre.
Community support comes in many ways
This year, we have resumed face-to-face orientation sessions and started with a fantastic group of professionals keen to meet their new teams and support us in our service to our patients and their families. To help support all involved in bringing new staff on board, we have begun cohort-based hiring with orientation session held every two weeks. You can log on to a full gala experience live streamed from The Grand Guelph. Thank you to everyone who participated last week in our Bell Let’s Talk campaign and contributed to our interactive display. It turned out very well, with people sharing a variety of wonderful ways that they support their mental health. Certain themes appeared, such as cuddling with pets, exercising, talking with loved ones, etc., including drawings and people commenting on each others’ posts! Keep an eye out in the future for more interactive displays. My thoughts are moving to the edge of Spring when the snowdrops peek through the snowbanks. This transition time is something I look forward to every year as an opportunity for reflection, calibration and commitment. I’ve been working at GGH for just over six months, and have been listening, a lot. And shared with a clear commitment to our patients, their families and our team’s wellbeing.

A little while ago, some very crafty person dropped off these ingenious ‘twiddle muffs’. These sleeves can be placed over a patient’s arm to distract from and protect an IV drip. They can also sit in a patient’s lap and hands can fit inside to keep warm. Inside and out there are varying textures and materials offered. There are also small items attached, for example an empty spool of thread and buttons of varying sizes, that can relax our patients with Dementia who like to ‘twiddle’ with them. Having something to occupy their hands and soft fabrics to caress can be very soothing. Twiddle muffs are a useful tool for helping to manage anxiety in our patients with Dementia and we are grateful to the anonymous donor who dropped these off. Waterloo Region & Wellington County
We have seen them sniffing around a fair bit with break-open tickets. On behalf of Ontario’s 17,000 lottery retailers, who represent over 50,000 employees, I implore that Bill 75 be reworded and reviewed. The LLBO and the Ministry of Consumer and Commercial Relations are currently reviewing the content of the advertising guidelines and how they are administered with an eye to cutting red tape and increasing administrative efficiency. While not directly addressed by Bill 75, the regulation of alcohol advertising will be effective. I remember I was working with a group from the Ontario Head Injury Association. They were having a heck of a time getting licensing for their break-open tickets, because they were told, “Only one licence per municipality.” Quite frankly, a suggestion was made earlier by one of the committee members that enforcement is difficult or perhaps won’t happen. The analogy was used that some waitresses or some establishments don’t enforce, for example, the regulation on continuing to serve people who are inebriated. Bill 75 is particularly new in this sense, and that is that it puts gaming with alcohol. So the LLBO, the regulator of the liquor business in Ontario, is going to be combined with the gaming commission to create something called the Alcohol and Gaming Commission. You may have been here when I was asking a previous operator how they feel this is going to affect their business and you’ve perhaps heard some of the answers, so I’ll try and ask them a little differently. On page 8 of the bill, the Liquor Licence Act, subsection (6.1), we are of the opinion that stronger enforcement and possibly stiffer penalties should be enforced. Detailed documentation should be kept by licensing boards to ensure that violators who have proven they are not licence holders do possibly not get the opportunity to get involved with VLTs and gaming. We would like to see stronger enforcement of this in the public interest. I echo Mr Hall’s concerns relating to introducing VLTs at racetracks. The demarcation line for people going to this place to gamble and therefore this place is kind of a fortress and won’t be hurt by the fact that the money is going over there is not true. We’re affected by everything that goes on in our community. The bingo industry has grown tremendously in the last five to 10 years, and particularly in Windsor, where bingo generates approximately $137 million annually. Some $25 million of that goes directly to charitable organizations. Over a thousand charitable organizations in the Windsor-Essex county area participate in bingo and raise proceeds in that manner. Racetracks have the infrastructure and the necessary customer amenities to accommodate the video lottery operations. The industry is prompt in remitting revenues to the government. As I stated in our presentation, from our industry’s perspective, what we need is to find sources of revenue that are going to augment our purses, and the VLTs would help us. By now, you will have heard the horror stories from Alberta where a leading financial institution was shocked by a $100,000 theft from an employee who lost that kind of money to the dreaded VLT in his local bar. By now, you will have heard the horror stories about the VLT that was attacked by the baseball-bat-carrying husband in the Atlantic provinces when he arrived home to find out that his wife had just dumped the grocery money into the VLT at the local variety store. There’s a need for the growth of the use of these machines to be tightly managed, particularly going into licensed establishments. We need to carefully evaluate the impact of phase 1 before proceeding on to the other phases.

The Meditech eMAR platform provides electronic documentation of the patient’s medication record in a closed loop system. EMAR will be implemented along with Bedside Medication Verification , a barcoding system that aims to reduce medication errors by supporting safe administration of the right medication to the right patient. EMAR-BMV will be integrated with the Humanscale Medication Carts to facilitate documentation and medication administration. In its eight years, the event has raised over $722,000 for our community and has grown into one of Guelph-Wellington’s largest community sporting events.

Values are a set of basic beliefs about what really matters and guide our decisions, actions, and behaviours every day. Our values were developed based on feedback from our team about our current organizational values. In the previous newsletter, our new Mission and Vision recently approved by our Board of Directors were shared, Complimenting those are new Values and Strategic Directions. More chances to dive further into what this all means and the impact they’ll have will come in the weeks and months ahead. Invite people to share how they want to be addressed, including their names and pronouns. It’s a time to reflect on the contributions our families, co-workers, friends, and community make to Canada and its future. And it also includes recognizing the truths of colonization and our individual and collective responses to the calls to action. These situations often emerge in circumstances where there is an imbalance of power. It can happen between people who know each other and between strangers. Living with the aftermath can be traumatic, and it’s important to give people the right kinds of support to begin to heal. Purchase your CNE tickets online with your unique corporate code and save!

The ceremony was led by Katrina Graham who will be supporting patients who are First Nation, Inuit and Metis in navigating their healthcare journey here. There’s some big money involved here and people are being told that it’s fun, you’re supposed to enjoy losing money, because it’s all about losing and not about winning. We have been the only private sector competition to their virtual monopoly on lotteries. It does make sense for the OLC to conduct and manage the VLT program because of their experience with online lotteries and their vast telecommunications network. However, the OLC at present has very little coverage in age-controlled establishments like bars. They have pretty well eliminated all their sales representatives who used to call on all these sites too, more like the convenience stores, which are the bulk of their business. We must not lose sight of the reason charities were given the privilege to use gaming as a fund-raising mechanism in the first place. These charities provide a much-needed service to those that the government used to or should provide for and no longer can afford to do so. If the government is going to be fair to the charities, the government must lift the restrictions placed on the charities. The government must allow the charities the same working tools that the Ontario lottery is presently operating with, that is, lift the restrictions on the break-open tickets, as I mentioned before, and allow coin-operated break-open dispensers. On behalf of myself, the employees I still have and those I would love to be able to re-employ, I urge you and your committee to recommend to the government quick passage of Bill 75. I would also suggest that your recommendation include a request to move implementation on VLTs for our industry on to the fast track. We’ve all been hoping the government would take this progressive step and we are grateful that it has. We need the stimulus of this new form of entertainment, we don’t have time to speculate as to the outcome and positive results are there already, as amply demonstrated in Manitoba. Mr Chairman and committee members, thank you for your time. I am aware of some of the information already presented to you. This includes research showing that less than 2% of the population are potential compulsive gamblers and another 3% to 5% may experience some problems. I want to congratulate the government on allocating funds to deal with this problem. The problem is already here, and it is important that something is done to deal with it. We know Prohibition did not work in stopping the sale of alcohol, nor will ignoring the fact that the public wants to use VLTs. From the government perspective, delaying the implementation to our industry will mean the government will not be able to start receiving over $500 million annually from machines allocated to our sector. Conversely, it means that illegal untaxed revenues from the grey machines will continue to remain in the underground economy. The Minister of Finance, in his budget of May 8, said the government was going to allow VLTs to help our industry. Specifically, he said, “We believe that VLTs, if implemented within tight regulatory controls and in limited-access environments, can meet a legitimate entertainment demand and provide a significant stimulus to the hospitality industry.”

Later this month, Riddell’s family will throw its energy into Milverton’s fall fair, which runs Sept. 17, 18 and 19. Among the many events, the fair features a co-ed beach volleyball tournament – which is Erika Riddell’s idea to attract more young people to the fair. Riddell is spending 12-hour days at the Ex, dropping into as many events as she can, chatting with hundreds of people, getting her photo snapped constantly, going on rides and taking part in a Mardi Gras parade every evening. She helped bring in crops and look after the various goats, sheep, chickens and ponies in her mother’s hobby farm. She also cared for her own horse and completed 26 4-H clubs, including the calf and farm safety clubs. She has attended more than a few agricultural fairs, competing in step dancing, baking and photography contests and showing her horse. On Thurs., Sept. 24, MCFN Chief and Council hosted a Caring Together event at the Lloyd S. King parking lot. It was also to play host to a parking lot car bingo, however with COVID-19 cases on the rise in Ontario, that portion of the event was cancelled. For the fall 2021 term, we’re keeping our services virtual to support students during this difficult and challenging time. To that end, we have reduced our fees but not our commitment.

During the long, hot summer evenings, Torontonians thrilled to night baseball at Maple Leaf Stadium on Bathurst Quay and to softball games at Sunnyside Stadium. Deputy Mayor Joe Pantalone, chairman of the board of governors for Exhibition Place, said it’s important to remember that other cultural events get government grants, where the 130-year-old CNE gets none. Under provincial legislation, the CNE is permitted to open the casino weeks in advance of the main event because the association runs a fair-related horse show at the same time, which is free to the public. The facial recognition system uses an algorithm to determine potential matches to people registered in the Self-Exclusion program.
We had the liquor board employees’ union here this morning, the people who work in the Liquor Licence Board of Ontario. You’re right, they gave a number of 15,568 licensed premises here in the province of Ontario. I dare say, I bet you most of them are more like your operation than they are the big hotel-motel, big dining room-tavern operations. They’ve got a total of 33 inspectors for 15,000-plus licensed establishments and they expressed concern about the capacity of 33 inspectors — three investigators too, so and five managers. They expressed concerns about the ability of that small number to adequately police all these places. Because I think you’ve got a good handle on the numbers and the size of your industry. One of the questions I would like to pose to you today is the government plan to police the enforcement of this act for violation. Because many restaurant and hotel licence holders now have house policies that do admit under-aged patrons to enter their establishment, strict measures need to be in force to ensure that minors are not permitted to be involved in any form of gaming. Our argument for this to anyone in opposition is that any well-established licensed premises in Ontario now, their management and their staff are familiar with those rules. I understood Mr Kormos’s comment where he was saying, “The bottom line is money,” and part of that is true for us. I’m here today because if there is some money to be made, as small business people we would like to be involved in it. With our business, as the industry and the nature of the gaming institution is changing, we would like you to know we are interested in that. If I’ve got an illegal machine, I don’t have to share with anybody, I don’t have to piece off the government, I don’t have to pay out the portion to charitable institutions; I get to keep it all. There’s still going to be an incentive to have illegal machines even if there are 20,000 legal slots, because the profits are there. Over the past two and a half years we’ve changed from what we were into more of an entertainment facility as a restaurant-bar.
As federal, provincial and municipal governments continue to cut back their expenditures, there is more and more pressure on service clubs and other community groups to assist in meeting the needs of their community. Here are two examples of the Burlington Central Lions community work. In 1995 our club raised over $50,000 for our local hospital’s capital needs, and this year we are raising a similar amount for defibrillators for the Burlington fire department. These are only two of our projects and both are meeting the local needs that governments are unable to fund. It is our understanding that Bill 75 will allow video lottery terminals to be introduced in liquor-controlled establishments throughout Ontario to raise revenues for provincial programs and for charities in the province. The use of VLTs will be restricted to those 19 years of age and older. This summer, in addition to driving a tractor and helping around the farm, Riddell gave private swimming lessons in her family’s backyard pool. A provincial entrepreneurship program provided her with funds to help start her business. Gambling has been a staple of agricultural fairs in Canada for the past century, from bingo and horse racing to raffles and wheels of fortune.
At present, the Burlington Central Lions Club has a Nevada or break-open ticket outlet in a licensed liquor establishment in Burlington. We also share Nevada ticket revenue from the bingo hall in which we are a sponsor organization. This source of fund-raising is a key component of our club’s ability to carry out our charity work in the community. In real dollars, our net proceeds from Nevada ticket sales are $20,000 per year. This represents as much as one third of our total fund-raising efforts for the club. One other special thing the couple is planning to do with their winnings is to donate a portion back to the Foundation to support the purchase of patient care equipment at Guelph General Hospital. Thank you, Jim and Melinda, for the generous gift of $2,500. As well, they plan to continue to play the 50/50 each and every month. Every year, Bell Let’s Talk Day strives to increase awareness about mental health through education and fundraising. Today , Bell will donate 5 cents towards mental health initiatives for each engagement done through a variety of online social media platforms and options. According to their website, they have committed $121,373,06.75, and have supported over 5,550,000 Canadians with access to mental health services. The type of work we do here is necessary, it matters, but the way we do it also matters. There are simple things we can do, like changing our language to be more inclusive are starting points. For example, “Do you have a partner” rather than “Do you have a husband/wife”, and normalizing asking pronouns/names, etc.) Wearing the PRIDE pin also signals to patients, their families and team members that we are safe people to disclose to and for them to be themselves. Employees also have access to foundational training in the LMS. There is also more systemic changes that we can do to help enhance our patient care and employee experience. We also recognized the important contributions of our teams and professionals in health care and the community that are LGBTQIA. We will continue to ensure that our teams have visible indicators that this is a Safe Space for people who are LGBTQIA to receive care, support their friends and family in receiving care, join our teams and develop their careers. And we will be funding 101 levels of education through the Rainbow Health Alliance and our LMS to support you in these efforts.
We hope you’ll watch it to the end and that your heart fills with pride and appreciation for what’s been made possible, together with the support of our caring community. Already over $15 million of the funds given have been invested in new patient care equipment and technology throughout our Hospital. We have shared the full equipment list funded by Together, We Care on our website. Here at Guelph General Hospital, every piece of equipment used to care for patients is funded through the support of our caring community. Construction costs also require some contribution from the community before the government will approve significant build projects. Through the strategic planning process, volunteers and staff showed a clear interest in learning about and taking action to support more inclusive experiences with patient care and employee experience. Thanks to a very generous donor it is happening again, but four times a week instead! The donor, Ruby Song, was so touched by the excellent care she received at GGH that she wanted to donate back to the staff. Starting the week of May 16, the amazing Bistro staff will be creating delicious and nutritious lunches for only $5 on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday & Sunday. Then in June, the days will switch to Monday, Wednesday, Saturday & Sunday.
The Home & Garden Pavilion features home-related products and services, including furniture and appliances, lifestyle, leisure, and personal care merchandise, plus items relating to home décor, home improvements and home renovations. St. Lawrence Seniors Club donated $2,000 from the bingo’s charity fund to five local organizations. Casino employees must register with the provincial agency, which requires background checks. The AGCO also provides its own full-time staff in the form of seconded plainclothes OPP officers who stay on site until the casino closes. In Ontario, any fair and exhibition that wants to offer casino-like games must submit detailed plans and get annual approval from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario. This year, the CNE is the only one in the province to get a licence. OLG will use reasonable efforts to notify Players in advance of planned Downtime by posting notices at OLG.ca or through other appropriate means as determined by OLG in its discretion. However, it may not be possible to notify Players in advance of Downtime, including in circumstances beyond OLG’s control or if the Downtime is determined to be necessary to address a potential or actual security threat or breach. If the Player registers a bank account that is held jointly with one or more other persons, withdrawals of Unutilized Funds from their Player Account will be paid into such joint account and, therefore, may be accessed by the other account holders.

By the summer of 1947, dad was working the Midway at the Ex, still counting the stuffed bears and going over the receipts at night. He was making $1500 dollars a week in 1947, the equaivalent of about $15,000 today. Soon Dad was working the winter midway in Brantford, Paddy’s home town. He figured out the rate at which the carnies in the game booths should be giving out the sawdust filled crap toys you win, and if they were giving out fewer than that, they were screwing the house. 211– community supports such as food banks, housing and more.

Estonia has repelled “the most extensive cyber attacks since 2007”, it said on Thursday, shortly after removing Soviet monuments in a region with an ethnic Russian majority. However, an Estonian government official said on Thursday the impact of the attack was limited. “Yesterday, Estonia was subject to the most extensive cyber attacks it has faced since 2007”, tweeted Luukas Ilves, undersecretary for digital transformation at Estonia’s Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications. France’s Interior Minister, Gérald Darmanin, says police operations to end “urban rodeos” – or illegal motorbike cruising – have been ramped up this week following the death of a teenager in Marseille. Norway’s central bank raised its benchmark interest rate by 50 basis points on Thursday, as expected by most economists and said it will likely hike again in September after inflation soared well above forecast. Norges Bank’s monetary policy committee raised the sight deposit rate to 1.75% from 1.25%, exceeding its own forecast made in June of a hike to 1.50%. “A markedly higher policy rate is needed to ease the pressures in the Norwegian economy and to bring inflation down towards the target,” Governor Ida Wolden Bache said in a statement. “Overall, the more people that are vaccinated in our community, the safer we all,” said Lisa Westaway, executive director of the Kateri Memorial Hospital Centre and member of Kahnawake’s COVID-19 Task Force.

As a result of their efforts and a request from the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 459, The Ladies Auxiliary was formed on February 16th, 1953. Legion President Len Buckland conducted the meeting and the members were sworn in by Mrs Richardson, the Provincial President of the Ladies Auxiliary. The mandate of the Executive was to assist the parent organization in their endeavours and to uphold the principles of that organization. Throughout the years this has been executed in various ways. Funds have been generated through involvement and sponsorship of horse shows, fashion shows, bingos and bazaars. Of greater note, the Ladies Auxiliary has become well known for their catering expertise. Get a roundup of the most important and intriguing national stories delivered to your inbox every weekday. TORONTO – The 137th Canadian National Exhibition is officially underway and Mayor John Tory was quick to join in the fun and games. But what’s a social democrat, heir to Woodsworth and Coldwell and Douglas and Frank Scott and the rest, doing mucking around with gambling in the first place. Ontario has been going rather loopy for some time, still trying to figure out how it elected a majority NDP government that got only 38 per cent of the vote. Jean Chrétien has admitted that he cannot enforce law and order and instead slashes the cost of cigarettes so young kids can afford them again and ruin their lungs. Clyde Wells confesses that all the cod are gone and an island that depends on fishing for a living has no fish and therefore no fishermen. If games aren’t your thing, allow yourself to be entertained. Watch as magicians entice dogs to perform magic tricks, from invisible puppies to wizarding pooches. The first solo museum exhibition by Toronto-born Chinese Canadian artist Matthew Wong opens at the AGO this weekend. The exhibition feature more than 40 melancholy paintings from the artist’s Blue Series, made between 2017 and 2019.

The existence of these machines will remain uncontrolled and access to these machines will be available to all age groups. Youth who legally enter licensed establishments will also be exposed to the VLTs of the AGCO. Over time, banks of VLTs will be found in over 10,000 of Ontario’s licensed establishments, ranging from taverns to restaurants to major hotels. Permanent charity casinos and racetracks will also feature a full range of gambling opportunities to patrons. Finally, large dedicated casinos similar to the ones operating in Windsor and by the Rama First Nation will expand to many other communities. In all these cases, the consumption of alcohol will be intertwined with the opportunity to gamble. It’s something that charities and gaming employees know, and we provide it. Charities are really good at recognizing who supports them; it’s their business. Let the individual charities operate the VLTs, and give them the option of utilizing the services of a gaming service supplier. They either like us or they don’t like us, but give them an option. The proposed 20,000 machines would give opportunities for many interested groups to get aboard, and experience has shown that charity involvement in gaming is more satisfying than just handing out funds or using the cumbersome grant application procedure. We are entering a month of many sacred days and events for our staff and community. The multicultural calendar is one tool we can use to help us plan, communicate our needs and even learn more about the important role that faith plays for many staff, patients and their families.

Recently, our Foundation’s marketing and communications staff filmed a video on site to share with donors to the Together, We Care fundraising campaign. The video features a large number of GGH staffers who explain how the $37,496,057 raised will benefit the community through an expanded ED, improved mental health services, new patient care equipment and an expansion of our SCN. In recognition of Indigenous History Month, Guelph General Hospital is pleased to promote the following opportunity to all our employees and volunteers. We welcome Katrina Graham, through the Southwest Ontario Aboriginal Health Access Centre, as a new and valued resource to our patients, their families and our team. Katrina will be supporting patients who are First Nation, Inuit and Métis in navigating their health care journey at Guelph General Hospital. This is a new program developed in partnership with the community and exciting addition to the quality of patient care we provide. Even large charities have chapters which deal at the local level with people.
- So, again, we would rather see, with a fair tax system, more money given to some of these downtown agencies which now end up relying on bingos and those kinds of things, which they know is not a community-building kind of activity.
- With these two pictures, one can almost smell the cotton candy and the corn dogs, and sense the peculiar excitement of the midway on a hot summer night.
- With the current system of Nevada tickets we know what our revenues are, within reason, on an annual basis.

- If you’re hunting for treasure, then the International Pavillion is for you.
