Great Canadian Gaming Corporation, owners of Hastings Racetrack in Vancouver, British Columbia, announced the resignation of Anthony R. Martin as president and chief operating officer Feb. 20.

Ross J. McLeod, chairman and CEO of the company, will assume Martin's responsibilities. Martin will remain available to the company to assist on a consultant basis, according to a press release.
