Negotiations to build gambling hall on the Sea to Sky Highway

The Squamish Nation is in talks with Toronto-based Boardwalk Gaming and Entertainment Inc. to build a small gambling hall on the Sea to Sky Highway.

The community gambling centre will have up to 150 slot machines and a bingo hall, said Greg Walker of the B.C. Lottery Corporation.

Squamish’s mayor, Ian Sutherland, confirmed that negotiations between Boardwalk and the District of Squamish for the gambling centre had not progressed because of a disagreement over its possible location. No location was identified.
