I disagree with your statement there.

Casinos are magnets for crime and depression.

Get ready for lots of "small children found abandoned in their car for 9 hours" stories with lots of folks moralizing and pontificating about how this terrible thing could've been avoided.

Brantford, Orillia, and Niagara Falls are all relatively close casinos to us here in Hamilton. Close enough that stories like this would be news if it were happening at those locations. I don't recall hearing any stories like that. Further to that, I've been near the casinos in the above cities (some for extended periods of time) yet never felt unsafe or uncomfortable there. So if you've some stories like this that have made it to print media please point me in their direction so I can read up on it and maybe change my mind.
