Former Liberal MP Dennis Mills wants to talk some horse sense into Dalton McGuinty — via billboards in Toronto — during the lead up to Sunday’s $1 million Queen’s Plate.
In Mills’ bid to challenge the premier’s plan to remove slots machines from Ontario racetracks, which have shared gaming profits with the province, two large billboards featuring a horse and foal will be erected Friday near Woodbine Racetrack just 48 hours before Canada’s most prestigious thoroughbred race is run there. There will be about 100 signs in all, some billboards, others posted throughout the city’s subway system and will state:
“Mr. Premier, a partnership is not a subsidy.”
