BRANDON - The Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs want to build a $35-$40 million casino in downtown Brandon. It will feature 300 slot machines and table games.

The city council of this city of 41,000 in Western Manitoba approved a plebiscite on the issue and scheduled it for March 12th. The projected payroll is $7-$8 million for 250-300 employees.

Manitoba Gaming Minister Dave Chomiak said the casino will not require the creation of an urban reserve in the city. He said "Our government is committed to building on our partnership with the AMC (Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs) to improve economic opportunities for First Nation peoples and bolster tourism growth in the Brandon area."

Revenue from the casino would be shared with the city and all 62 member First Nations in the AMC.

If approved by voters, the construction of the casino could begin some time in 2008.
