BC Lottery Corporation’s plan to open a destination casino in South Surrey have prompted former federal NDP candidate Susan Keeping to organize a community discussion.

The breakfast meeting will be held at 7:30 a.m., Nov. 7 at the ABC Restaurant at 2160 King George Blvd.

Participants will be asked how such a casino will affect local business, how it will affect the community and how it will affect them as individuals.

The casino, hotel and entertainment complex, to be operated by Gateway Casinos, is planned for property at 10 Avenue and 168 Street, and is projected for a 2014 or early 2015 opening.

The proposal still requires final approval from the City of Surrey.
