Mice at WEM Starlight Casino
I recently volunteered at West Edmonton Mall’s Starlight Casino. The volunteers lounge had an huge mouse in it. When some of the volunteers informed the staff about the mouse they said they knew about it and they cannot do anything because the whole mall is full of mice. Staff refused to put a mouse trap in the room and did not take any of the volunteers suggestions seriously. The mouse remained active in the room for the entire two days of our casino. The mouse was not scared of people but may of the volunteers were terrified of the mouse!
The volunteers lounge is a place for volunteers to eat their meals and to wait (sometimes hours at a time) until they are needed for their position. There are snacks and coffee in the lounge for us. My issue is that mice are filthy and can carry disease. For volunteers to be subjected to these conditions is gross and completely unacceptable.
Yes, we are volunteers but we do it to support organizations and activities throughout the city.
I’m really annoyed about this entire situation and feel that the general public and anyone that volunteers at the Starlight Casino should be aware of the conditions that they will be working in.
