Sudbury Casino/Arena LPAT appeal

There are many in our community opposed to the establishment of a full casino in Sudbury. Whether your concerns are economic, cultural, social or environmental, it is only by combing our efforts into one, that we have a real chance of preventing this project from moving forward.

In preparation for our appeal we have commissioned an economic impact report , planning reports, legal opinions and have retained legal council. We are ready to act following the city council decision on April 10th, through LPAT submissions to the OMB. We intend to appeal the casino rezoning, event center rezoning, and the casino official plan amendment.

Along with a separate legal fund campaign for businesses, (which has raised 160K of its 250K goal) we are asking the citizens of Sudbury to contribute. While the LPAT process is simple, the preparation of the appeal has been extensive , and it is likely the appeals will result in hearings.

Lets all work together to get our city back on track towards sustainable economic development where we embrace all that makes our city a great place to live, work and play!

Thank you for standing up for your community!

NOTE: Any funds remaining at the end of the campaign will be donated to The Fabio Belli Foundation.

( All funds donated to this campaign will be forwarded by Tom Fortin to  our legal council, Gord Petch -trust account -Municipal Law Chambers located in Oakville, Ontario.  The method of transfer is by Cheque once per month.)
