Maid project continues

(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — Maid of the Mist still awaits a decision in another lawsuit from Hornblower Entertainment and Cruises, a California boat tour company that aims to reopen the Maid’s 40-year, no-bid contract to run the attraction from the American side. 

Hornblower won the rights to operate the boat tours in Ontario last year and will take control of the attraction and the boat docking facilities — located on the Canadian side of the gorge — in the beginning of 2014.

Panepinto, who is also presiding over the Hornblower case, heard arguments in the lawsuit in April and is in the process of writing a decision.

Yes. Items should be taxed like they are everywhere else.
No, the indian reservations are sovereign land and they are selling them on their land.
Not up to me. Native Americans decide the rules on their land.
Don't care. Smoking isn't good for you.
