Rallies To Target Liberal MPPS In Riding Offices, Friday, March 30th, Please Attend And Stand Up For Horse Racing


Liberal MPPs in Ontario are being targeted on Friday, March 30th in an extremely critical concentration of rallies orchestrated by the Ontario Horse Racing Industry Association (OHRIA).

Set for the local constituency offices of many Liberal Members, these events represent our best chance to reinforce the devastating affect closing the Slots at Racetracks program will have on their particular communities.

It’s imperative to our cause that we turn out in force for these events on Friday, so we can influence these politicians before the vote on the Ontario Budget. They need to see the faces whose livelihoods they are negating, not only in the horse racing and breeding industry, but within the wide-ranging economic cycle that our business sustains.

If you’ve been wondering what more you as an individual can do, the ball is now in your court.

Just SHOW UP-with your friends and families-it’s the most important thing you can do right now for horse racing, and for the whole Ontario horse industry!
