Toronto City Council has taken their bets off the table, voting to defer any possible debate on a casino in the city until a future date.
During Wednesday's meeting, motions by Councillor Vaughan to hold a referendum, and by Councillor Mike Layton to not use the lands surrounding Ontario Place for a venue, did not pass.
This means the city's executive committee will now take the item and work on it, before bringing it back to council.
Premier Dalton McGuinty stated last month, that he would leave the decision on a casino to residents.
The comments came after the OLG announced they were planning on building two casinos in Ontario, as part of a major expansion on gambling in the province.
