More details will come this afternoon at a press conference, but a rumoured 1800 jobs will be generated by the project AND live music fans have a very good reason to be optimistic about future shows at the casino. Ottawa will be a brand new stop for the casino nostalgia tours that we used to have to travel for!
A new hotel on site is also part of the announcement. You can expect more gaming tables and slot machines in first phase of development. It was just a few years ago that the Racetrack was in jeopardy of folding, and the now the future looks very, very bright indeed, even before the neon signs and bright lights of the Hard Rock have been installed!
