Candidates clueless about Cloverdale

Daves Showboat and Sandra Roberts had a message for visitors to Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino last Saturday.

Re: “Candidates: In their own words,” April 29

In reading your interviews of local candidates in the Cloverdale area I noticed that not one of them made any mention of the ongoing issues between the horsepersons of Fraser Downs and Great Canadian Gaming Corp.

Fraser Downs is one of the largest, if not the largest, employer in the area, employing approximately 3,500 persons through spin offs to the industry and not a single mention of what is happening.

One would think that it would be a concern.

Now that the elections are behind us I hope that this industry will be recognized and be provided with some assistance in remaining viable.
