"Chamber of Commerce survey says 67% of respondents oppose standalone downtown casino" by Kayleigh Rogers and Samantha Craggs on CBC Hamilton: http://www.cbc.ca/hamilton/news/story/20...

"Chamber businesses split over casino location" by Matthew Van Dongen on thespec.com: http://www.thespec.com/news/business/loc...

It is interesting to see that 50% of the Chamber members who responded to the survey support a casino the existing Flamborough location and 46% support a downtown casino so long as it is packaged with a hotel and entertainment complex.

What would the results have been had the Chamber members been asked a question along the following lines:

"Do you support a standalone casino at the existing Flamborough site and a new downtown hotel and entertainment complex without a casino?"

This question presents a very real option given the potential obstacles to building a hotel at Flamboro Downs and the promise made by Carmen's to build a downtown hotel with restaurant and entertainment components contingent within three to five years of winning the Hamilton Convention Centre management contract.
