The Toronto TV anchormen will have a tough job to report the bad news first, then the good news next.


First, here is the bad news:
An AC homeless lady butchered our 2 Toronto residents to death near Bally's casino in Atlantic City. Click the link and read the details.

Next, here is the good news:
The Atlantic City Casino Authority will pay Air Canada in the amount of $705,000 to fly our residents to AC... To fly or not to fly to AC, it's all up to you. Click the link and read the details.

I'm OK with Corps which pick and choose clienteles. Both insurance companies and casinos have the right to pick and choose customers. They may keep profitable ones and kicked out the rest. But, I'm not OK with a casino supervisor who says counting cards... is like stealing food from a buffet (a foodlifting offense), or video-taping a movie in a cinema (a piracy offense).

Well hope they have the $2.1 million handy to pay AIR CANADA when they can not fill the planes

People from the metro Toronto area will be able to catch a flight out of Buffalo to VEGAS and back cheaper..so where would you go?

Give you and idea how expensive AIR CANADA is I just did a search Toronto to Philly and back July 2- 6 $840 or so

same exact dates but using DELTA guess how much it was? less than half price at $412 but its not direct its via New York

100-120 degree desert vs oceanfront/ bayfront rooms?

This is the 1 time of year AC has a chance to compete.

No one is flying to "AC" for 2X the price of Vegas.

I am a very frequent flyer, in my experience, Airline tickets are based simply on supply & demand, if the planes are fairly empty you'll be able to fly Toronto>AC for <$100 1way , if the planes are near full, you'll pay a few hundred or more if you covet a unique oceanfront gambling destination in summer.

Not saying AC can ever compete w/ Vegas, but some of us beach creatures possess a different mindset in summer- not for eveyone-if you're one of us - you may pay more to be on the ocean-

I live near the ocean & our local junket flt co suspends flts to Vegas in summer because it's the only few mos. a year we'd rather be here vs Vegas

Don't forget the cost from the airport to the casinos.

Also im pro AC. I hate people dogging on it. I haven't experienced the crime ridden experience people talk about. Anytime a casino in the USA fails it stings me.
Gambling should be americas pass time.
