Ontario Lottery Gaming says there’s no truth to reports that it has found providers to operate five casinos proposed for the north. OLG says it’s still in the search phase. However it expects to announce the operators by early next year. The OLG is privatizing all its casinos and has been holding transition meetings to accomplish this. The three existing northern casinos in Thunder Bay, Sudbury and Sault Ste. Marie will all be privatized. Also new casinos proposed for North Bay and Kenora will operate under private ownership.
