“If Dwight Duncan did come to my farm I’d show him the effects with respect to employing people, the amount of dollars that are actually spent by either myself or my clients, the spin off effect, not just wages . . . the veterinarian . . . the blacksmiths . . . the straw . . . the hay . . . the grain. I don’t believe that Mr. Duncan realizes the spin off of this horse racing industry.”
So notes Bob Ladouceur of St Lads Farm regarding the removal of the slots at racetracks program across the province. Windsor Star visited Ladouceur at his farm for the feature which appears today.
Within the story Ladouceur's veterinarian notes that if the Liberal government's decision goes forward "The reality is I'm going to be euthanizing horses."
