Abbotsford holds public hearing on slot machines on Monday

At 7 p.m. on Monday, a public hearing will take place regarding the request by Playtime Gaming to increase the number of slot machines at its Chances Community Gaming Centre. It is expected to be a long session as the public, like council, appears divided on the issue. When slot machines were first introduced in Abbotsford, the public hearing attracted hundreds of people and went on for several hours.
