In a sign of casino companies' eagerness to build in Toronto, Mayor Rob Ford got a visit at City Hall from Sheldon Adelson, controversial owner of the Las Vegas Sands empire and one of the world's richest men.

Adelson, 79, arrived at Ford's office Thursday afternoon with his wife, Dr. Miriam Adelson, and two aides for the private, unpublicized 45-minute meeting that he had requested.

Ford's office declined to give details but Adelson is registered to lobby city officials on his interest in building a casino resort in Toronto.
