Broken Promise number #7

Page 26, A New Era for BC

Broken Promise number #7

"No expansion of Gaming," said Gordon Campbell 2001 election

2,400 slot machines in 10 casinos when the Liberals took over.

8,000 slot machines today under the Liberals in Bingo halls as well.

Slot machines were restricted to casinos when the NDP was Government. Kelowna now has a state of the art, bar none, the best building in North America to separate you from your money. The Kelowna Bingo Hall and Chances moves people easily from Bingo to slots, to off track betting and sports betting.

The NDP took in 560 million dollars from gambling - The Campbell Liberals one billion dollars. BC has become the second jurisdiction in North America to go with Internet gambling.

The BC Lottery corporation wanted to do this with the NDP. The NDP said no!

Note: You will not find the New Era document on the BC Liberal election site. I have linked to a copy of it at the top of this site in the sidebar!
