As the horse racing industry faces an unprecedented threat from the Government of Ontario with their latest announcement regarding the future of the OLG Slots at Racetrack Program, Standardbred Canada urges everyone impacted by these cuts to sign a petition that will be presented, by OHRIA, to the provincial government.
In association with the Ontario Horse Racing Industry Association, a number of initiatives will be rolled out in the upcoming days to defend our industry and gain public support, and your help is needed now more than ever in getting our message out there.
Attached to this message is a petition template we are asking each of you to help circulate each and every day going forward.
You can drop off the signed and completed petitions at your local racetrack race office, Standardbred Canada’s office or this weekend at the I Love Canadian Harness Racing Fan Club booth at the Can-Am Equine Show, March 16-18 at the Western Fair Agriplex in London, Ont. Completed petitions may also be mailed back to the OHRIA office:
P.O. Box 456,
Stn. B, Toronto, ON M9W 5L4
Please ensure that all signed and returned petitions use this petition template.
